The Welsh Historical Review Yet within two years Henry found it necessary to launch a new campaign against the Welsh, a campaign notable for its elaborate and extensive preparations, for the methods used to finance it, and for the cohesion shown by the Welsh in the face of the might of the Angevin Empire. Henry’s campaign was a total failure, damaging to his own prestige and to the position of the Normans in Wales.
The disaster had important consequences for Henry’s policy towards Wales. The late-twelfth and early-thirteenth-century Anglo-Norman chronicle accounts of the events surrounding the campaign are brief. Roger of Howden, William of Newburgh, Robert of Torigny, the Melrose Chronicle and Gervase of Canterbury provide accounts of the campaign that vary in length from a few lines to a modest paragraph.

The Evo Triangle The Power of Three Apparently ‘three’ is the magic number and indeed many great things do come in threes: On a bright July morning I left the quiet Welsh village of Ruthin in search of another great trio. A set of roads many petrolheads will have heard of but few lucky enough to have driven. I was in North Wales headed for the Denbigh Moors, home to the Evo triangle, so called because of its admiration from the writers at Evo magazine high praise indeed.
This triple crown of roads could well feature as a backdrop in various car publications on a monthly basis. My journey west took in the B , a road that I can only describe as the Evo triangle’s fluffer. Through the dappled sunlight I sat back and let this lovely road prepare me for what lay ahead. I blissfully cruised towards my destination and could already feel that today was going to be a good day.
Needless to say, I arrived suitably alert and ready for action! A quick splash from the petrol station in Cerrigydrudion and I was ready.

Eagle-eyed train enthusiasts will have spotted the train as it arrived at Carmarthen railway station shortly before 10pm on Thursday night. It will be used by Great Western Railway on its routes between South Wales and London, and, with speeds of up to mph, is expected to shave 20 minutes off journey time for people travelling from Swansea to Paddington.
Following the announcement that electrification will not be rolled out further west than Cardiff, the hybrid trains will rely on their diesel engines as they travel between Carmarthen and the capital.

Of course, voter turnout is notoriously low in midterm elections, so enthusiasm in advance might not translate to ballots cast on the big day. In California, registering and voting is relatively easy, or at least easier than in states notorious for suppression. Also our October 22 deadline is more accommodating than most. But you may still have questions. People in state or federal prison you can register from county jail!
Sixteen- and year-olds can pre-register to vote. Now how do you register? Have you moved within California since the last election?

The observed fractionation is an ancient feature related to diagenesis, burial and metamorphism. The magnitude of Sm-Nd fractionation between leachates and residues, as well as the resulting Sm-Nd ages, vary as a function of grain size and metamorphic grade. Uncleaved Welsh mudrocks of the diagenetic zone yield Sm-Nd leachate-residue ages of — Ma, in agreement with their Llanviian to Caradocian biostratigraphic ages, whereas higher grade rocks of the anchizone and epizone yield Sm-Nd ages as young as Ma.
These ages are transitional between the time of deposition and the time of regional deformation related to the Acadian Orogeny at Ma. Distinct convex-upward rare earth element REE patterns of the leachates suggest that the precipitation of early diagenetic apatite controls the trace element budget of the rock, forcing a depletion of middle REEs on the subsequently formed diagenetic phyllosilicates. The amount of organic matter present and the extent of later prograde reactions are probable modifiers of this fractionation process.

Name[ edit ] Maelgwn IPA: As “hound” was sometimes used as a kenning for a warrior in early Welsh poetry, the name may also be translated as “Princely Warrior”. The kingdom of Gwynedd began with the reconquest of the coast by northern Britons under the command of Maelgwn’s great-grandfather Cunedda Wledig. Generations later, Maelgwn’s father Cadwallon Long-Hand completed the process by destroying the last Irish settlements on Anglesey. Maelgwn was the first king to enjoy the fruits of his family’s conquest and he is considered the founder of the medieval kingdom’s royal family.
He is thus most commonly referenced by appending the name of the kingdom to his own: By tradition, his llys English: Tradition also holds that he died at nearby Llanrhos, and was buried there.

Britannia Bridge from the east along the Menai Strait Anglesey is a relatively low-lying island, with low hills spaced evenly over the north of the island. In all other directions the island is surrounded by the Irish Sea. It is the 51st largest island in Europe, and just five square kilometres smaller than Singapore. There are several small towns scattered around the island, making it quite evenly populated. Beaumaris is a yachting centre, with many boats moored in the bay or off Gallows Point.

Llangefni is located in the centre and is the island’s administrative centre. The town of Menai Bridge Welsh: Porthaethwy, in the southeast expanded when the first bridge to the mainland was being built, in order to accommodate workers and construction. Until then, Porthaethwy had been one of the principal ferry crossing points from the mainland.
