The brief:

For Monty Funk to produce a series of 12 bi-lingual (English and Welsh) audio trails around various sites connected with the Welsh Princes of Gwynedd.

The Princes ruled Wales from the years following the Roman departure of Wales, and its final invasion by the English king Edward I in 1276, and for more than 800 years, the princes fought with one another and the English Crown to secure their positions of power.

But this was not just a time of war and turmoil - the princes also forged strong cultural and religious links with continental Europe and were patrons of beautiful architecture, music and poetry.

The results - hear the audio trails:

Abergwyngregyn

Protected to the east by the headland of Penmaenmawr, and at its rear by Snowdonia, Abergwyngregyn controlled the ancient crossing point of the Lafan Sands to Anglesey.

It was the seat of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native Prince of Wales, whose daughter Gwenllian of Wales was born here in June 1282. His wife, Eleanor de Montfort, died here as a result of the birth on 19 June 1282.

In June 1283 Dafydd ap Gruffudd, Llywelyn's brother, who assumed the title of Prince of Wales after Llywelyn's murder in December 1282, was captured at Bera Mountain above the present village.
