E. Campbell and P. Macdonald report their findings from the excavation
of a sixth/seventh-century cemetery at Caerwent before placing the site in
its historical context and summarising Roman and post-medieval finds, in
Archaeologia Cambrensis, 142, 74-98.
G. R. J. Jones reassesses a land dispute over the area of 'Tir Telych'
preserved in the Book of St Chad that has important implications for early
medieval Welsh law and society, in Studia Celtica, 28, 81-95.
M. Rednap discusses the find of a pre-Norman cross at Caerwent,
indicating late Saxon influence in Gwent and possibly lending support to
theories of a far longer period of Christian importance for the site, in The
Monmouthshire Antiquary, 10, 1-6.
J. E. Caerwyn Williams reviews the role of the Celtic poet, in Lien Cymru,
18, nos. 1 and 2, 7-15 (in Welsh).
P. Sims-Williams asserts that literature in Wales, notably the 'Llywarch
Hen' cycle, was presented for its literary merit rather than for
contemporary political or dynastic interests; this leads to a valuable re-
assessment of some ninth-century rulers, in ante, 17, no. 1, 1-40.
S. Davies reviews the place of women in medieval Wales, in CofCenedl, 9,
1-32 (in Welsh).

continuing tradition dating back to at least the tenth century, in Medieval
Archaeology, 38, 19-54.
K. Murphy presents the excavation of three burgage plots in the
medieval town of Newport, Dyfed, arguing for earth-built thatched
buildings, and examining the means by which the town was laid out, in
Medieval Archaeology, 38, 55-82.
W J. Britnell gives a detailed account of excavations and recordings at
Pennant Melangell church, in The Montgomeryshire Collections, 82, 41-102;
this is followed by R. B. Heaton's and W J. Britnell's study of the structural
history of the church, ibid., 103-38.
