Over the past 2 months GGAT has been excavating at the former Cyfarthfa Ironworks, Merthyr Tydfil. The development area is situated in what was once the coke yard and associated ovens connected to the ironworks. The excavation has revealed multiphase forges, smithies, coke ovens, calcining kilns, coal stores, a marshalling yard and office buildings.
