Inventor of Britain: The Life and Legacy of Humphrey Llwyd

19.01.19 – 29.06.19

Hengwrt Gallery

Humphrey Llwyd was not only responsible for the first published map of Wales but also for writings on Welsh history and culture. In addition to this he helped to pass the law allowing the Bible to be translated into Welsh and is credited with inventing the term British Empire. This exhibition, held in association with the AHRC funded project “Inventor of Britain: The Complete Works of Humphrey Llwyd”, aims to celebrate his contribution to Welsh culture and to highlight the new research produced as part of the project.
