D-Day Landings Memorial, Newport: archaeological watching brief
An archaeological watching brief was carried out outside the Old Post Office, HighStreet, Newport, on the groundwork for repositioning the D-Day Landings memorial presently located in John Frost Square. The excavation required was not of sufficient depth to reach archaeological levels, and only modern materials were encountered.
The project was managed by Richard Lewis BA MIFA and the fieldwork wasundertaken by Steve Sell BA of the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust(Projects). The report was prepared by Steve Sell with assistance from Paul Jones of GGAT Illustration Department. Thanks are due to Terry Jones of Newport CityCouncil, Engineering and Construction Division, and to Jason Shannon of AllanGriffiths, the contractors, for their assistance during the project.
