Gwobr am Llechi Cymru: Archaeoleg a Hanes





Mae’n bleser gennym gyhoeddi bod Dr David Gwyn, awdur Llechi Cymru: Archaeoleg a Hanes a gyhoeddwyd gan y Comisiwn Brenhinol, wedi derbyn Gwobr Peter Neaverson am Ysgolheictod Rhagorol y Gymdeithas Archaeoleg Ddiwydiannol ar gyfer y flwyddyn 2016.

David Gwyn oedd enillydd cyntaf y wobr yn 2009, ond roedd yr holl feirniaid o’r farn na ellid anwybyddu Llechi Cymru. Pan glywodd y newyddion, dywedodd David:

‘Mae’n fraint fawr derbyn gwobr Peter Neaverson am Llechi Cymru. Mae’r wobr yn adlewyrchu safon uchel y golygu a’r cynhyrchu sy’n nodweddiadol o gyhoeddiadau Comisiwn Brenhinol Henebion Cymru.’

Bydd y wobr yn cael ei chyflwyno iddo yng nghynhadledd flynyddol y Gymdeithas Archaeoleg Ddiwydiannol ym mis Medi.

Bydd David hefyd yn siarad ar ran y Comisiwn Brenhinol am ddiwydiant llechi Cymru yng Ngŵyl y Gelli ar Ddydd Iau 2 Mehefin.

Dr David Gwyn (canol) yn ystod lansiad y llyfr yn Neuadd Fawr Castell Penrhyn, ger Bangor, ym mis Mai 2015.

Ynghylch Llechi Cymru
:
Mae’r llyfr hwn yn disgrifio pob agwedd ar ddiwydiant llechi Cymru. Yn ogystal â chynnig arweiniad cynhwysfawr i archaeoleg ac olion ffisegol y diwydiant, mae’n ymdrin â’i hanes cymdeithasol a’i arwyddocâd heddiw yn stori esblygol Cymru. Roedd y llyfr yn allweddol hefyd yn yr ymgyrch i gynnwys Diwydiant Llechi Gogledd Cymru ar restr dros dro y DU ar gyfer Enwebiad Treftadaeth y Byd.

Mae’r llyfr ar gael yn y Gymraeg ac yn y Saesneg:

Llechi Cymru: Archaeoleg a Hanes (ISBN: 978-1871184-52-5).

Welsh Slate: Archaeology and History of an Industry (ISBN: 978-1871184-51-8)

Llyfrau fformat mawr yw’r rhain, yn cynnwys 291 o dudalennau a 243 o ddelweddau o ansawdd uchel. Y pris yw £45.

Royal Commission gains Heritage Lottery Fund approval for the development of ‘The Forgotten U-boat War around the Welsh Coast’ Project





The Royal Commission, in partnership with Bangor University and the Nautical Archaeology Society, have been given a grant to pursue the development of a new Great War commemoration project.

Some 170 shipping and aircraft losses relating to war at sea are recorded in the National Monuments Record of Wales. Each site has the potential to act as a focus for commemoration, but 14 have initially been selected for underwater exploration to enable the Great War story to be told from both the Allied and German perspectives. The sites include British and German submarines; HMS PENSHURST - the Royal Navy's most successful Q-ship or decoy vessel; HMS DERBENT a tanker which played an important part in refuelling naval vessels in the Mediterranean during the Gallipoli campaign; large merchant ships carrying Welsh coal to key theatres of the war as well as coasting vessels from the last days of sail.

The new underwater survey data will be combined into 3D interactive models to be displayed on a dedicated website.

After 100 years underwater, the wrecks have become fabulously rich colonies of marine life. It is hoped that the project will provide opportunities for volunteers to assist with species identification.

The project has been developed in collaboration with Welsh museums and the Archives Network Wales, whose kind letters of support have provided a great deal of inspiration for the initial work programme. It is hoped that many of the project’s outreach activities will be linked into maritime museums, with each participating group having the opportunity to contribute a display panel to a mobile exhibition. The exhibition will be launched at a conference in 2018.

Remembering those who gave their lives for their country, and who have no grave but the sea.

In March 1915, the DERBENT was in the Mediterranean at Port Mudros and Tendos refuelling naval vessels such as HMS PHAETON and HMS INFLEXIBLE, which were attempting to seize control of the Dardanelles Straits during the Gallipoli Campaign.

Prosiect Cofebion Rhyfel Powys: Cystadleuaeth Ffotograffiaeth Ddi-dâl 2016





Mae 2590 o gofebion rhyfel wedi’u cofnodi yng Nghymru, yn amrywio o gofgolofnau ar eu traed eu hun a champweithiau cerfluniol i lechi syml mewn capeli, eglwysi, ysgolion, swyddfeydd post a banciau. Gyda’i gilydd, y rhain yw’r grŵp mwyaf o lawer o gofebion cyhoeddus yng Nghymru, a cheir enghreifftiau ym mron pob cymuned. Er bod enghreifftiau o ryfeloedd cynharach, yn enwedig Rhyfel De Affrica (1899-1902), gosodwyd y mwyafrif o’r cofebion yn y 1920au a thalwyd amdanynt drwy gyfraniadau gan bobl leol fel rheol. Mae’r ComisiwnBrenhinol wedi tynnu lluniau o gyfran dda o’r rhain ar gyfer Coflein, ein cronfa ddata ar-lein ac ar gyfer llawlyfr “Gofalu am Gofebion Rhyfel yng Nghymru” 2014.

Mae Cyngor Sir Powys wedi derbyn arian gan Gronfa Dreftadaeth y Loteri, Cadw (Llywodraeth Cymru) ac Awdurdod Parc Cenedlaethol Bannau Brycheiniog ar gyfer Prosiect Cofebion Rhyfel Powys 2014-2018: Arwydd o Barch. Pwrpas y prosiect hwn yw coffáu canmlwyddiant y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf ac fel rhan o’r prosiect mae cystadleuaeth ffotograffiaeth yn cael ei chynnal i gofnodi’r cofebion rhyfel. Fel yr eglura Nathan Davies, Swyddog Prosiect Cofebion Rhyfel Powys, “Rydym yn gwybod am tua 300 o gofebion rhyfel ym Mhowys, yn amrywio o groesau cerrig i ffenestri lliw, o blaciau i gerfluniau. Ond mae’n debygol fod yna lawer mwy na hyn. Un o nodau’r prosiect yw canfod, cofnodi a chatalogio’r holl gofebion Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf yn y sir. Y cyfan sydd angen i chi ei wneud yw dod o hyd i gofeb ryfel, cymryd ffotograff ohoni, llenwi'r ffurflen gais a’i e-bostio atom. Dyna'r cyfan! Byddwch yn coffáu canmlwyddiant y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf ac yn cael cyfle i ennill cyfran o'r wobr ariannol o £200.”

Cystadleuaeth ddi-dâl yw hon, ac mae dau gategori o gystadleuwyr: pobl ifanc ac oedolion. Y dyddiad cau ar gyfer y gystadleuaeth yw Dydd Gwener, 10 Mehefin, 2016. I gael mwy o wybodaeth, ewch i dudalen y prosiect ar y wefan www.growinpowys.co.uk/2091/competitions neu cysylltwch â Nathan Davies:

The Archaeology of the Skerries (Ynysoedd y Moelrhoniaid), north Wales





On 19 April, Royal Commission Investigator Dr Toby Driver accompanied an RSPB monitoring visit out to the Skerries, a small group of rocky islets off north-west Anglesey. Archaeological aerial reconnaissance had identified unrecorded earthworks surviving on the southern side of the islet. The trip was also a long overdue chance to examine the wider archaeology and built heritage of this remote islet which has seen few archaeological visitors since Douglas Hague’s trips in the early 1980s, culminating in his 1994 Royal Commission book ‘Lighthouses of Wales’.

The Skerries is dominated by its fine lighthouse, built on an outcrop at the highest point. A light was first established here after 1716, built by William Trench as a personal venture. After several different phases of work the lighthouse achieved its present appearance under Trinity House and consultant engineer James Walker, who rebuilt it in 1851. The light towers 36m above high water, and the residential block presently accommodates RSPB staff during the nesting season among a noisy colony of Artic Terns. Luckily the lighthouse was open for maintenance by Trinity House staff during the visit, allowing new photography of its interior and lantern room.

The group of buildings around the lighthouse includes the oldest separate keepers’ dwelling in the British Isles, an early eighteenth-century crow-stepped gabled cottage, and a tiny stone well-head building, both now listed. Both buildings were recorded with 360 degree photography, allowing for future 3D modelling using digital photogrammetry.

During the brief two-hour visit there was time to reconnoitre the wider islet. From the lighthouse, this is reached via a tiny cobbled footbridge across a deep chasm. Further on are the ruins of the ‘Buoy-keepers’ cottage’, a small stone shelter recorded by Hague in 1971. This sits at one end of a larger earthwork building platform identified from aerial photographs. This larger platform may be far earlier than the stone ruin, and could perhaps date to the Middle Ages when the Skerries belonged to the monks of Bangor as one of their principal fisheries. Alongside the platform stands a small stone mooring post above the beach. The vegetation across the main part of the islet is a perforated grass sward covered in rabbit holes, re-used by nesting Puffins in the spring and summer months. Other features noted during the visit included stone navigational beacons, and channels cut between freshwater pools presumably to conserve scarce drinking water in times past.
