Rigara remains

1926, The Senghenydd Crate.


Throughout the 1926 archaeological excavation, Fox made extensive sketches on single sheets of paper that were stored folded within his notebook.

In this sketch Sir Cyril carefully documented the distribution of the bones before they were removed and taken to National Museum Cardiff.


Like many other pages left in his notebook, the page also contains casual notes that give insight into Sir Cyril's daily life on the digsite. In this instance, there is a short "shopping list" in the bottom right corner.

Following the discovery of the Crate, efforts have been to locate where the 1926 excavation took place. So far no evidence of the site has been found.
