‘SPHERES OF INFLUENCE’

A day-conference to explore the impacts of estates on the history, culture and landscapes of Anglesey, from the medieval period to the present day.

Bangor University’s Institute for the Study of Welsh Estates, the Anglesey Antiquarian Society and Gwynedd Archaeological Trust are pleased to announce details of a one-day conference to explore the impacts of estates on the history, culture and landscapes of Anglesey, from the medieval period to the present day.

Hosted in the grounds of Plas Cadnant, one of Anglesey’s most longstanding country houses, the day will consist of a series of short presentations on the history and influence of estates including Bodorgan, Baron Hill, Lligwy and Penmynydd, with sessions on medieval gentry culture, local office-holding, country house architecture, praise poetry, musical patronage and the life and contribution of a female landowner in the early-20th century.  The day will conclude with a talk on the contemporary role and management of estates.

This event follows on from Peter Lord’s recent talk at the National Eisteddfod on Anglesey’s visual culture and Dr. Gareth Hughes’ lecture on the history of the Penrhos estate. 

Members of the public are warmly invited to join us for what should be a fascinating exploration of the region’s history.

The conference fee is £25 per person.  This includes a hot lunch and tea/coffee in the morning and afternoon breaks.  Please let us know when booking if you have any dietary or access requirements. 

Capacity is strictly limited, so please book your place as soon as possible.

To pay by post, please send a cheque payable to the Anglesey Antiquarian Society to Dr. Shaun Evans, Institute for the Study of Welsh Estates, College of Arts and Humanities, Bangor University, Gwynedd, LL57 2DG.
