The Conquests of Wales

Saturday 9 May 2020, 10.00AM to 4.00pm

The Anglo-Saxons and Normans had tried to subjugate Wales, but it was not until 1283 that Edward I conquered the country and claimed the title of Prince of Wales for his eldest son. However, Wales refused to be conquered. Rebellions led by Owen Glyndwr threatened English control, and Welsh involvement in the Wars of the Roses strengthened the Lancastrian cause. It was not until the reign of Henry VIII that Wales was finally integrated into Tudor Britain. This day course will explore the impact of the conquests of Wales. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor
