Scientists from Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, who made the discovery believe it will shed new light on the interaction between Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Viking-age worlds operating around the Irish Sea. 

 

The skeleton find is an unexpected addition to a group of five (two adolescents, two adult males and one woman) discovered in 1998-99.  Originally thought to be victims of Viking raiding, which began in the 850s, this interpretation is now being revised. Tests by Dr Katie Hemer of Sheffield University indicates that the males were not local to Anglesey, but may have spent their early years (at least up to the age of seven) in North West Scotland or Scandinavia.

Susanne Skubik Intriligator's insight:

The finds confirm Llanbedrgoch as a major trading centre in the 10th century. Also interesting is new proof that the people were not local to Anglesey, but could have come from Scotland or Scandinavia.

Culture Must Always Be a Commons | OpenGLAM

Culture Must Always Be a Commons | OpenGLAM | Sharing Heritage: Social media, UGC, and digital engagement for museums | Scoop.it

I believe that the cultural community – museums, libraries, archives, galleries, memory institutions worldwide – need a new idea. An idea that will see us through the transition from the 20th to the 21st Century. An idea that is fundamentally connected to the core of what we do, but which creates a sense of dynamism and relevance in the hearts and minds of audiences everywhere, of all ages. I think the wholsesale transformation of Culture into a Commons is that idea.
