Thursday 17th November – Llys and Maerdref: The Royal Courts of the Princes of Gwynedd

On behalf of the Archaeology Society, we would like to draw attention to a talk you may be interested in… read on! :)

The lecture is about the royal palaces, or llysoedd, of the Princes of Gwynedd, North West Wales, during the centuries of independence before the conquest by Edward I in 1283. It will focus on ongoing excavations which begun in 1992, at one of these royal courts-Llys Rhosyr, located in Anglesey, which was lost under the sand for nearly 700 years and which is the best preserved of these rare sites. Recent projects to discover further sites will also be discussed. The site is of national importance, therefore has become a focus for welsh nationalism and politics which will be discussed. The lecture is by the director of Llys Rhosyr project Neil Johnstone.
