Kidwelly Field School - 1996

During May 1996, two members of MADU attendad a field school run by the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) on Cefn Sidan Sands, Pembrey, Dyfed, South Wales.  The field school involved the surveying and recording of an unknown hulk on the beach, and the work culminated in a NAS Part II report on the site:
