Published by Wessex Archaeology
In June 2010 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ at the site of Llancaiach Fawr Manor and grounds (National Grid Reference (NGR) 311361 196618), Cadw listed building reference number 13562 – Grade 1.
The present Manor House is known to be predominantly of 16th century date, and was built for the Pritchard (ap Richard) family, but is thought to occupy the site of an earlier manorial complex. Previous archaeological work on the Site, including geophysical survey and trial trenching, had located a large rectilinear ditch or ‘moat’ to the east of the Manor House, as well as other features such as a cobbled surface and possible buried walling. A series of earthworks, also to the east of the House, were surveyed by the RCAHMW in the 1970s, but are no longer visible; their location currently lies under a car park.
The Time Team evaluation, comprising eight trenches, found no conclusive evidence of any medieval structure (or associated activity) thought to have occupied the Site prior to the current Manor House, although one fragment of medieval roof tile was recovered in a later deposit.
Activity in the vicinity of the house was predominantly post-medieval and modern, associated with the use of the Manor as a farm and later as a private house. Examples include a cobbled yard and path, made-ground and animal burials.
