The Valley Works at Rhydymwyn, near Mold, Flintshire, produced hundreds of tons of mustard gas in World War Two.

They are to present their findings at a public meeting on Tuesday.
Experts from Birmingham University's school of archaeology were commissioned to examine the industrial heritage at the Flintshire site.
