A 14th-century village in South Wales….


The TV series In Search of Medieval Britain, presented by Dr Alixe Bovey, is being repeated at the moment. In it she follows the Gough Map, thought to be the oldest surviving detailed map of England and Wales. Last night I watched the episode concerning Wales, during which she mentioned Cosmeston Medieval Village

Now, while I knew about—and have visited—the famous buildings at the Welsh Folk Museum at St Fagan’s,  I didn’t know about Cosmeston. It looks fascinating.

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a link which enables you to watch this series, although I think you can view it on You Tube if you are in the US.
