Abstract

LONGBURYBANK, Dyfed is a native British early medieval settlement occupied in the 6th and 7th centuries A. D. The excavations in 1988-89 produced aseries ojarteJacts which provide evidence ojhigh status: imported Mediterranean pottery; continental pottery and glass; fine metalworking debris; and an unusual Type Gpenannular brooch. The site is unusual in being undefended and it is suggested that it belongs to a newly recognized class ojundefended high status secular sites, other possible examples ojwhich are discussed. The site is placed in its historical and landscape context through the use of pre-Norman and later documentation which appears to show a major shift in settlement in the 8th or 9th centuries.
