Llys Rhosyr medieval court to be rebuilt at St Fagans

Work to reconstruct one of the medieval courts of the Princes of Gwynedd has begun at St Fagans National History Museum, near Cardiff.

Rebuilding the great hall from Llys Rhosyr on Anglesey will be one of the most challenging archaeological projects in Wales, said the museum.

It will see the building's nine-metre high (29.5 ft) stone walls and thatched roof rebuilt.

It is part of wider renovations of St Fagans.
