Battle of Crogen medieval weekend - with Cwmwd Ial

Details

Join us to commemorate the Battle of Crogen, which took place in 1165 in the Ceiriog Valley, between the forces of Henry II and the combined forces of the Welsh princes.

Local re-enactment group Cwmwd Ial will make an encampment to represent the Welsh forces, and Les Miles des Marches will represent the English forces. Take a look around the different encampments, see the differences in arms and armour, and learn about everyday life in the early medieval period.
