Fragments: A Creative Response to Merthyr’s Early Medieval History
19 January 2013Theatr Soar, Merthyr Tydfil - Saturday 16th February 2013 at 11.00 am
Crannog in Llangorse Lake
Fragments is a vibrant exhibition of craft, photography, music, poetry and live performance created by community groups from Merthyr Tydfil. It is the culmination of work produced during History and Mystery, an arts and heritage project that explored the area’s history including the destruction of the royal court of the Kings of Brycheiniog, built in the tenth century on a man-made island or crannog in Llangorse Lake. History and Mystery has brought this little known story to life through a series of field trips, backstage museum visits and creative arts activities.
Dr Alan Lane [Cardiff Senior Archaeologist] will deliver a talk about the excavations at Llangorse Crannog which inspired this project as part of this event at 11.30am.
Over 400 members of the Merthyr community have taken part in the project, which has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and has been supported by National Museum Wales, Cardiff University, Theatr Soar and Merthyr Tydfil CBC.
