History 

Brecon Beacons History

Brecon

Neolithic Standing stones over 4,000 years old are dotted around the Park. Hill forst from the Iron Age are also visible. They are thought once to have been political and trading centres, there are over twenty of these sites around the National Park. The Romans came to the Park in around AD43. Their most important base in the area was Y Gaer near Brecon which was once used to accommodate over 600 soldiers. During his reign in the Dark Ages King Offa ordered the construction of the earth boundary that still bears his name, Offa's Dyke. It stretches the 150 mile length of the Welsh border. 

The Norman Conquest made its presence felt in the National Park with its castles, although none so dramatic as Carreg Cennen. As far back as the 16th Century the Welsh were laying the foundations for the industrial age. Evidence of the industrial age lies a few miles further south, at Blaenavon. Now part of a World Heritage Site, Blaenavon Ironworks was one of the largest ironworks in the world.
