Barry Bronze Age site protection plea

Breaking News

An archaeology group has called for the site of a 3,500-year-old settlement in the Vale of Glamorgan to be protected.

The remains of a Bronze Age village at Bendrick were first uncovered near the Atlantic Trading Estate near Barry in the 1980s.

Archaeology Cymru says the site is rapidly deteriorating due to off-road biking and other activities by people who may be unaware of what is there.

The county council, which owns the land, said it would investigate.

He said the remains of a Bronze Age roundhouse were still visible today. ...
