History 

Anglesey History

Anglesey/

The first evidence of humans on the island comes from the Mesolithic period, about 7000 BC. At the time of the Roman occupation of Wales (first century AD), Anglesey was one of the last strongholds of the Celts and their druidic priests. The Romans eventually won the battle, subdued the Druids, and cut down their groves of sacred oaks.

After the Romans withdrew in the 4th century Anglesey came under the influence of the Kings of Dublin. Numerous raids occurred and it is likely that Irish settled in parts of the island. Eventually war broke out around 400 AD in which the Welsh, supported by Celts from the north of England, vanquished the Irish from the island. Viking raids during the medieval period caused much destruction of these settlements

The 13th century saw conflict between Wales and England, which was now ruled by the descendants of the Norman invaders. Edward I of England twice launched campaigns against Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the last Prince of Wales. In both cases Llywelyn was defeated. After the final defeat Edward built a series of castles around the coast of Wales to subdue the natives, including Beaumaris Castle on Anglesey.

From the 18th century onwards Anglesey became important for two reasons: copper and travel to Ireland. In the 1760's full scale mining was begun there to satisfy demands for the metal for production of guns, metal plating for ships, and coinage. Many of the coastal bays on Anglesey had served as small ports throughout the ages, but by the 18th century Holyhead had emerged as the main port, primarily because it is the closest point to Ireland.
