The Inventory of Historic Battlefields in Wales
The National Library of Wales lunchtime talk by Scott Lloyd, Introducing ‘The Inventory of Historic Battlefields in Wales’.
The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales is launching a new website, ‘The Inventory of Historic Battlefields in Wales’, a research resource containing information on the locations of over 800 battles. This talk will introduce the project background, the Battlefields Inventory, and the problems of mapping uncertain locations. Important questions include: how many times did Viking raiders come to Wales? Which regions of Wales have seen the most conflict over the last 2,000 years, and what archaeological evidence survives for Welsh battlefields?
To be held at 1.15pm, 22/02/2017 in the Drwm of the National Library of Wales. Free admission by ticket.
