Welcome to CAER Heritage Hidden Hillfort

Archaeologists from Cardiff University have teamed up with Action in Caerau and Ely (ACE), 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.

In 2019 we were awarded a major National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to celebrate and bring to centre stage the incredible Caerau Iron Age hillfort – explore our website to find out more about the project and the archaeology of Caerau and Ely.
