Caerau Hillfort, is by far the largest Iron-Age hillfort in south Glamorgan. The housing estates that surround this monument are home to more than 25,000 people – the largest social housing estates in Wales. Despite strong community ties, the people that live there are burdened by significant social and economic deprivation, particularly high unemployment. The Caerau and Ely Rediscovering Heritage (CAER) project seeks utilise this community’s rich and untapped heritage assets and local expertise to develop educational and life opportunities: building confidence, challenging negative stereotypes and realising the positive potential of the process of research co-production. This chapter provides a summary of key aspects of the literature surrounding participation and co-production in Wales. It explores CAER’s approach to co-production within this context, analysing the reflections of a small group of community members regarding their involvement in two major community excavations which took place in June-July 2013 and 2014.
