A FINAL dig at the site of an early Medieval chapel on a Pembrokeshire Coast National Park beach is expected to reveal more about people living in Wales 1,000 years ago.

Archaeologists have already carried out two excavations at the site of St Patrick's Chapel in the dunes at Whitesands Bay, St Davids.

Almost 50 skeletons dating to the 7th and 11th centuries have been uncovered. Many were in 'cist' graves - long graves lined with stone slabs. Child graves were also found decorated with layers of quartz pebbles and limpet shells.
