Five seasons of excavation, mostly on the fluvio glacial sand ridge above the Clwyd, revealed complex multi-period activity from the Mesolithic onward.
The preservation of features from so many periods had been made possible by a gradual build-up of soil, partly caused by sand blown from dunes when the coastline was close to Rhuddlan. This stratified occupation makes Rhuddlan arguably one of the most important archaeological sites in Wales. It will one day yield enormous quantities of data.
This report has been finally completed 23 years after the strategy for the initial excavation was planned. Inevitably, over such a lapse of time, methodology has advanced and much of the work done will appear deficient by the standards of today. Some reparation is made by the inclusion of specialist reports prepared comparatively recently, but there are bound to be areas of record or comment which will be viewed critically. With the advance of time goes increase in costs, and full coverage of every aspect of the excavation results has not been attempted. Instead the report has been planned to bring to the notice of those interested in the various periods, structures and artefacts, the full range of data available for study.
