The field school is run by the Strata Florida Trust (an independent charity) in partnership with the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, as part of a 20 year research and excavation project. The site is a 12th century Cistercian abbey site, with a later gentry house, in Pontrhydfendigaid, Ceredigion, Wales. Inclusivity and training are at the core of our excavations, and we are keen to help participants progress in a career in archaeology, with a number of bursaries offered.
