Collectors back to school for summer antique fair.. Retrieved Nov 12 from https: This well-established fair has been held in Carmarthen for more than 11 years, with the special summer fair also offering an outside antiques market in the spacious school grounds With more than 50 stalls inside, it’s hard to select highlights. Roger Tanner from Fishguard specialises in seafaring memorabilia, including ships’ wheels, compasses, lamps and bells, gleaming from hours of polishing. His historical charts and log books make great reading and the travelling sea chests on display could probably tell a tale. There will again be a free valuation service, so go and search the attic for those forgotten, hidden treasures. David Jones will also be showing off his extensive collection of fine quality sponge ware, some early Prattware, plus a range of miniature pottery that includes some rare children’s plates and mugs dating back to the 18th century.

The name Morgannwg or Glamorgan ‘territory of Morgan’ reputedly derives from the 8th-century king Morgan ab Athrwys, otherwise known as “Morgan Mwynfawr” ‘great in riches’ who united Glywysing with the neighbouring kingdoms of Gwent and Ergyng , although some have argued for the similar 10th-century ruler Morgan Hen.

All that remains of these fortifications are foundations that leave archaeological evidence of their existence, though many were built upon to create more permanent defensive structures. The earliest surviving structures within the region are early stone monuments, waypoints and grave markers dating between the 5th and 7th century, with many being moved from their original position to sheltered locations for protection. The lowlands of the Lordship of Glamorgan were manorialized, while much of the sparsely populated uplands were left under Welsh control until the late 13th century.

The legacy of the Marcher Lords left the area scattered with historic buildings including Norman castles, Cistercian Abbeys , churches and medieval monuments. The kingdom of Glamorgan was also notable for the number of castles built during the time of the Marcher Lords , many surviving to the present day though many are now ruinous. Some were captured, and several were damaged to such an extent they were never maintained as defences again. When the Diocese of Llandaff became incorporated into the Province of Canterbury, the Bishop of Llandaff rebuilt over the small church with the beginnings of Llandaff Cathedral in The building of parish churches also began in the 12th century, densely in the Vale, but very sparsely in the upland and northern areas.

County of Glamorgan[ edit ] History — [ edit ] The Laws in Wales Acts of established the County of Glamorgan through the amalgamation of the Lordship of Glamorgan with the lordships of Gower and Kilvey ; the area that had previously been the cantref of Gwynllwg was lost to Monmouthshire. With Wales finally incorporated with the English dominions, the administration of justice passed into the hands of the crown. The main industry of Glamorgan during this period was agriculture. In the upland, or Blaenau area, the hilly terrain along with many areas being densely wooded, made arable farming unprofitable, so the local farming concentrated on the rearing of horses, cattle and sheep.

Bryn Celli Ddu a late Neolithic chambered tomb on Anglesey Wales has been inhabited by modern humans for at least 29, years. At that time sea levels were much lower than today, and the shallower parts of what is now the North Sea were dry land. The east coast of present day England and the coasts of present day Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands were connected by the former landmass known as Doggerland , forming the British Peninsula on the European mainland. The post-glacial rise in sea level separated Wales and Ireland, forming the Irish Sea.

A lady was unpacking her boxes of china when out came a little pottery cat amongst plates and vases and jugs. Like a bee to honey I just couldn’t help but rave about this little cat. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but it is a fantastic little cat.

It has spent its recent history being fairly unloved and unappreciated. The present owner inherited it and isn’t that keen on it and when her daughter moved to London the cat was packed as a memento and something to decorate the flat. Five years later it was returned as it didn’t fit into the d cor anymore. The amazing thing is that it has survived unscathed since about , passing through numerous hands until it finds its way to auction.

The cat was made in the Ewenny pottery factory in Bridgend in about , although this particular example is unmarked. The potteries at Ewenny were first established in and pottery is still produced there today.

A sluice at the head of the millpond, operated by a lever inside the mill, controls the release of water into a wooden trough and onto the overshot cast iron waterwheel.

The axle from the waterwheel enters the mill through an opening in the wall. Inside, the axle supports a large iron pit-wheel which turns at the same speed and in the same plane as the water wheel outside. Set into the rim of this pit-wheel are wooden cogs which mesh with and turn a smaller horizontal wheel known as the wallower which is borne on an upright shaft.

Above the wallower, also on the upright shaft, is the great spur wheel, the main transmission wheel of the mill. This in turn drives a stone nut under each set of millstones. A pair of Welsh stones was used for milling oats, barley or animal feed whilst a pair of harder French burrstones was used to mill wheat to make flour for breadmaking.
