The Walton Basin Project
Excavation and Survey in a Prehistoric Landscape 1993–7
by Alex Gibson
The Walton Basin lies on the Welsh borderland and is a discrete lowland parcel of land which is surrounded by uplands. Numerous flint scatters and monuments have been discovered which date from the Mesolithic to the Roman invasion and indeed later.
Prehistoric standing monuments comprise barrows, standing stones and a stone circle. The Neolithic archaeology is particularly rich and includes two palisaded enclosures and at least one cursus as well as extensive flint scatters. This report deals with the explorative archaeology of the prehistoric sites undertaken by the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust.
