Lord Mayor visits Oystermouth community excavation

The Lord Mayor of Swansea, Cllr Richard Lewis, and the Lady Mayoress recently visited the Oystermouth Castle community excavation. They talked to various members of the team before being shown around the site. Afterwards, GGAT archaeologists Rob Dunning and Andy Sherman explained what had been found in the various trenches. Andy also showed them some of the nicest finds from last years as well as this years excavation.
Mrs Lewis was particularly interested to see what we had discovered, since she was brought up in Oystermouth and used to play at the castle when she was a girl.
