Welcome to CAER Heritage Project

Archaeologists from Cardiff University have teamed up with Ely and Caerau Communities First, local residents and the local schools to start the Caerau And Ely Rediscovering (CAER) Heritage Project, based in West Cardiff.   The aim of the project is to explore the history and archaeology of the Cardiff suburbs of Caerau and Ely from prehistory through to the modern day, helping to connect communities with their heritage and develop educational opportunities.

The CAER Heritage Project runs all sorts of activities, many focussed around the magnificent Caerau Iron Age hillfort – explore our website to find out more about them and the archaeology of Caerau and Ely.
