Sixth Century Gwent- South Wales having bee Christianised by very holy saints following the removal of the Romans is threatened by another people the superstitious and irreverent Angles and Saxons. Having done a deal with Ceowulf at Gloucester, they begin wandering down into South Wales and raiding for what they ould get. Pickings were poor on the whole but the Kings who had set up their daughters in religious foundations, or who had retired to live as religious having finished their childbearing of then had a few items around, living peaceably supporting the communities on the foothills of the Brecon Beacons and in the lovely valley North of Pontypool.No doubt they thought they were worth raiding, carrying off the young women. Tegfedd and Tydfil (mother of St Teilo) stood their ground, however, asking the Saxons to leave Holy Ground they were dragged off and suffered their fate.
