Lancaut Revelations – 16th March, Chepstow

Recent Revelations from the Lancaut Peninsular – a day-school about a ruined church and DMV on the banks of the Wye below a promontory fort on the line of Offa’s Dyke. How do we think it fits together?

Day School event on Friday 16th March at the Chepstow Drill Hall, 10am-3.30pm.

Cost £5 (includes a light lunch & refreshments).

For the full programme see Lancaut Flyer A5

Find out about the results from a small partnership project that has conducted walkovers, geophysical surveys and targeted excavations around the medieval church yard at the Lancaut DMV and in the promontory fort at Spital Meend. The questions the project hopes to shed light on included whether Lancaut was a Celtic (British) / Early Christian monastic complex, how and when Spital Meend was occupied and used, and how these related to Offa’s Dyke. The partnership is between the Forest of Dean Building Preservation Trust, who own Lancaut Church, Historic England, Gloucestershire Archaeology, Herefordshire Archaeology, Offa’s Dyke Collaboratory, Southern Marches Archaeological Practice Ltd., Wye Valley AONB Partnership and local landowners, with funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Gloucestershire Environmental Trust.
