Moel Arthur Geophysical Survey

We were commissioned by the Clwydian Range Archaeology Group to help with a fluxgate gradiometer survey on the slopes below Moel Arthur hillfort. The group battled with difficult conditions, with areas of heather and gorse up to a meter deep in places, managing to cover an area of about 1.3 Ha around a wet flush on the hillside. The survey was based on a possible burnt mound which had been located in a previous survey and the group had excavated in 2013. Further possible archaeological activity was located around the wet flush including a number of highly magnetic anomalies which may be associated with other high temperature features.
