First milestone of St Fagans redevelopment project complete

The first building to be completed in an ongoing £25m project to redevelop St Fagans will open its doors today.

The Bryn Eryr, which is based on an archaeological site from the time of the Roman conquest, is a recreation of a small Iron Age farmstead near Llansadwrn in the eastern corner of Anglesey.

This rural settlement consists of two roundhouses built with six-foot thick clay walls and large conical thatched roofs.

The farmstead was built with the help of hundreds of volunteers, school children and members of neighbouring communities in Ely and Caerau.

Together with the Museum’s own building team, they raised up the clay walls, helped to interpret the history of the houses and rediscovered the lives of its original inhabitants.
