      Grand Canyon is like this just opened book, except instead of pages you see colorful, picturesque rock layers that hold tales of times long ago. A closer look at the book reveals that some of the pages have been ripped out, and others were never written. It is an incomplete book, yet it contains an overwhelming amount of information. Britain is a land of myth and legend, at the centre of which the stories of King Arthur are amongst the most renowned. At Dinas Emrys in the mountains of North Wales, history and myth combine in a potent mixture to deliver one of the most important sites in the Arthurian canon.

    Gwynedd was always the primary kingdom of Wales, even though it has moments when it was dominated by rulers from the south. It had several great rulers during its early years but the first to earn the title "the Great" was Rhodri ap Merfyn who by had inherited Powys () and Seisyllwg, in addition to Gwynedd, and was effectively ruler of all northern and western Wales.   For a brief spell in the 80’s and 90’s, higher education was consumed by the canon wars. For those too young to remember, the canon wars were some earnest and intense battles among people who couldn’t agree on which authors needed to be taught for students to be considered properly educated. Allan Bloom usually gets credit (or blame) for picking the fight, but the battle was.

    One of the more curious landmarks of the Snowdonian landscape are rock cannon, known in Welsh as cerrig cannon. Often found gathering moss at viewpoints like the one above located on the Farchynys headland, rock cannon are man-made firing points made with stone with holes specially drilled for discharging gunpowder – readily available of course in the slate quarries of the Harlech dome.
