The Story of Wales

Last night, BBC Wales broadcast the first of a major series of programmes telling the history of Wales over six episodes. This first episode: ‘The Makings of Wales’ looked at the earliest-known human burial in Western Europe at Paviland Cave, the biggest prehistoric copper mine in the world at the Great Orme, Llandudno, the Neolithic chambered tomb at Barclodiad y Gawres (The Giantesses Apronful), the Iron Age hillfort of Tre’r Ceiri (City of the Giants). Caerleon Roman sites and inscribed stones at St Illtyd’s church, Llantwit Major, and finally a look at the cathedral church at St Davids in time for Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant (St Davids Day) on Thursday, when the next episode: ‘Power Struggles’ covers the medieval period of Welsh history.
