A landscape surrounded by myth and ancient history
This area is steeped with wonderful history scattered right across Snowdonia and Anglesey
There are ancient burial chambers and standing stones of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods to the age of the Celts and the Iron Age hillforts and their settlements
– if you only know where to find them!
Why not journey through the ages – visiting ancient burial tombs, standing stones and through into the age of Celts and their amazing hillforts
Visit the reputed groves of the ancient Druids and their final days in battle against the powerful Roman legions – and then forward into medieval Wales and our astounding castles.
Our Roman history includes the first Roman invasion of Anglesey in 60AD led by Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, which wiped out the Druids of Mona. Other sites of interest include the Segontium Roman Fort in Caernarfon.
We have medieval castles built by King Edward 1st during his conquest of Wales and we have earlier smaller castles built by our very own Welsh princes – each with their own dramatic tale.
