Product Description

Caernarfon is a royal town, community, and port in Gwynedd, Wales, with a population of 9,615. It lies along the eastern shore of the Menai Strait, opposite the Isle of Anglesey.Abundant natural resources in and around the Menai Straits enabled human habitation in prehistoric Britain. The Romans occupied the region until the end of Roman rule in Britain in 382, after which Caernarfon became part of the Kingdom of Gwynedd. In the 13th century, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, ruler of Gwynedd, refused to pay homage to Edward I of England, prompting the English conquest of Gwynedd. This was followed by the construction of Caernarfon Castle, one of the largest and most imposing fortifications built by the English in Wales.
