Warning for people digging up ground on Iron Age hillfort

CADW have warned against illegal excavations on Pen Dinas after a group of people were seen “metal detecting and digging” on the ancient Iron Age hillfort.

Dylan Lewis, director of Penparcau Community Forum and former mayor of Aberystwyth, said he witnessed three people engaged in the activity on Pen Dinas on Sunday, 8 January, after seeing evidence of human digging on the hill the day before.

Pen Dinas, which is described by the St Fagans National History Museum as “one of the largest and most important hillforts in west Wales”, is designated a ‘scheduled ancient monument’ by CADW, the Welsh Government’s historic environment service.
