St Patrick’s Chapel – 3D models reveal altar within stone enclosure
The dig at St Patricks Chapel, which came to a close in July, generated huge excitement and interest both from local people living in the West Wales area, as well as visitors from all over the UK and further afield.
The excavation unearthed over one hundred skeletons including men, women and infants. Bone analysis, which is taking place at Sheffield University will reveal more about who these people were and where they came from.
The team at Dyfed Archaeological Trust have created two 3D models, one showing what appears to be an altar and the other shows the circular stone enclosure with the altar in its centre. Further investigations are continuing to understand better these features and how they relate to each other.
These links will take you to the 3D models:
A full report of the excavation is expected to be completed at the end of 2021.
