Celtic Manor Ryder Cup course extension

Celtic Manor Ryder Cup course extension

Ratings: (0)|Views: 189|Likes:
Planning consent has been granted to the Celtic Manor Resort for an extension to the
existing Wentwood Hills golf course. The Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust
were appointed by the Celtic Manor Resort to oversee and undertake archaeological
works in connection with the development of the new course which will be the one on
which the Ryder Cup golf tournament will be played in 2010. One of the new greens,
Hole 17, impinged on the Scheduled Ancient Monument known as Roman Site Great
Bulmore MM 176. Twenty-four evaluation trenches were examined in the monument.
The result of the evaluation was that remains of Roman date were discovered on the
flatter ground at the base of the hill at various points in the SAM area.
At the request of Cadw a potential burial was removed and five small additional
trenches excavated in order to define the southern limits of the single certain building
complex found by the evaluation. All remains were recorded before the trenches were
backfilled; those containing remains by hand the others mechanically. As the
evaluation provided definition of the limits the SAM boundary can be realigned.
This report provides a summary of the findings as required by Condition 9 of the
Scheduled Monument Consent. A full report will be published following completion
of post excavation work for the whole development.
