Troedyrhiw Time Team?

Friends of Saron welcomed community archaeologist Jan Bailey to Troedyrhiw’s snow blanketed Saron Graveyard yesterday. Jan, who works on youth engagement projects for Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust confirmed our view that the Saron site has considerable local historical value.

Jan’s mission is to work with community groups ‘to enthuse young people about their own local heritage.’

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
