Indeed, the Council for British Archaeology have designated Monmouth as one of the top ten towns in Britain for archaeology.Evidence of a Bronze Age boatbuilding community, including three 100 feet (30 m) long channels adjoining the site of a now-vanished lake, was discovered in September 2013, during archaeological investigations by the Monmouth Archaeological Society of the Parc Glyndwr housing development site, immediately north-west of the town.Oak timbers had been "skillfully" cut with stone or flint axes to form stilts, of posts and poles, which "probably" rested on three parallel fully-grown tree 'sleeper beams', up to 3 feet 3 inches (1 m) wide, laid horizontally on the lakebed.The town is 30 miles (48 km) northeast of Cardiff, and 113 miles (182 km) west of London.
It is within the Monmouthshire local authority, and the parliamentary constituency of Monmouth.
The Welsh name for the river, Mynwy, which may originally have meant "fast-flowing", was anglicised as Monnow.
