THE CONQUEST OF GLAMORGAN - FURTHER NOTES
In this paper, we suggest
answers to the basic questions as to where, when and who were involved in the conquest, and what occurred during the dozen
years following the 1107 death of FitzHamo
THE ANCESTRY OF IESTYN AP GWRGAN
Here, we begin with the earliest man named Iestyn ap Gwrgan, and try to construct
a chronologically stable pedigree of his paternal ancestors, noting that existing pedigrees appear to omit one generation

KING OF ENGLAND MEDIATES WELSH DISPUTES
this paper, we discuss two events where the King of Wessex was asked to mediate land disputes between two Welsh kings and
which appear to have been conflated into a single event by early writers of Welsh history. We also examine a 983 election
in Morgannwg to clarify the identity of the contestants.

paper examines the various manuscripts which list "5 Royal Tribes of Wales", and shows that the list of men presented by Phillip
Yorke's book of that name is NOT in agreement with the earliest sources.
