Widely called the Dark Ages, the first millennium was an exciting time in Welsh history. The advent of Christianity, the emergence of the Welsh princes and the blossoming of Welsh law, language and culture led to the development of a proud Celtic nation prior to the beginning of Anglo-Norman incursions in the eleventh centuries. Our tour will explore the Wales of Hywel Dda and Llywellyn Fawr, warrior and poet, saint and prince. We'll enjoy the scenery of Mid Wales while exploring the rich tapesty of history that gives Wales its unique cultural heritage.
