Ceri, I am up to my neck in research for the new novel I bought a local history book entitles Antiquities of Margam Mountain
whih brought homr to mr that there was an organised urban culture 2,000 years ago in smoky ol; Port Talbot. I live at the foot of this mountain and I started scouring the old maps and read all the local stuff I could about it and Hey presto started to write. Would loe to see this site archeologically excavate. Nothing has been done up there. The site includes village, farms hill forts and barrows, fascinating IoloMorgannwg states the Silurian tribe fought the Romans, but the Glamorgan and Gwent Archeological society state there is no evidence of this. However the placenames indicate old battles were fought there. Quite a surprise for one who never thought al this history existed here. I am taking the more romantic shall we say interpretation for this from Iolo Morgannwg. There are prehistoric trackways across the mountains because originally the lowlands were all forest I could go on and on about this but would probably bore everyone to death. Nice to hear from you Ceri
The short story competition looks amazingly interesting and has motivated me to write in a genre which I have not attempted in a long while. The thing about Americymru it really still stimulates interest in Welsh American interests. If anyone would like to correspond on these issues please feel free
Hi there, I'm back on line after a long absence. I have written two scripts concerned with GM food issues and one set in Myddfai, a fascinating place. Currently I am working on a novel about Celts, in South Wales, my current obsession. Would love to hear from anyone out there interested obviously in Welsh/American links/literature, philosophy and history.
