Cefn-Brynich Farm: a New Claudio-Neronian Fort in the Usk Valley, Powys, Wales

  • Jeffrey L. Davies (a1) and Toby G. Driver (a2)

Abstract

This paper describes how the reinterpretation of published coin evidence from the Portable Antiquities Scheme, coupled with favourable conditions for cropmark formation, led to the discovery in 2013 of a probable Claudio-Neronian fort in the upper Usk valley near Brecon. This extends our knowledge of pre-Flavian installations further into central Wales than the hitherto most westerly known fort at Abergavenny.
