The Archaeology beneath the World Leaders feet

Long before the Americans and other World Leaders took over the Celtic Manor Resort for the NATO Summit, another invading nation, the Romans, decided to make the land there their home.
Discover all about the Roman archaeology around the Celtic Manor, learn about the excavations, associated finds and background information.
The Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust have undertaken all the archaeological works at the site, where construction of a top class golf course and management of top class archaeology somehow had to work together.
Learn more by visiting the Celtic Manor Archaeology website.
