you are absolutely correct. I am indeed looking at these sites as well. I
may have to rethink my use of the term "harbour", though.
Maybe "docking facilities"? But that excludes sites where boats were
simply drawn on shore. "Landing sites"? Not so sure about that either. It
excludes bigger harbour structures like those you'd find at Hedeby. Maybe I'll go
with "docking and landing facilities"...
There may have been a wharf and semi-circular beaching facilities on the
river Gele [a tributary of the Clwyd] near Rhyl.
The Romans used the Clywd, andf this site may have been the northern end
of the Roman road that ran south up the valley. This complex may have
continued in sporadic use until the 1,700's or later.
The complex is quite extensive and appears to remains largerly intact.
