New information boards installed at Knap Roman site


The Vale of Glamorgan Council has installed new information boards at a Knap monument consisting of the remains of a Roman rectangular courtyard building dating back to the 2nd or 3rd centuries AD.

The site is located just above the entrance to the Knap Car Park and is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Romano-British settlement and socio-economic organisation.

The feature forms an important element within the wider context of Romano-British society in Wales and retains significant archaeological potential. Such Roman buildings are often part of a larger cluster of rural and urban settlements and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

Cabinet Member for Leisure, Arts and Culture said, Cllr Kathryn McCaffer said;
“The previous signs had been in need of upgrading for some time and had mostly become unreadable. The Knap is a popular tourist destination and the monument a key piece of local history.

“Visitors and residents alike will now be able to learn more about the site and its rich history.
