Llyn Fawr is a lake that was extensively reconstructed in the years before the First World War, and during this work, many Celtic treasures were found. These were gifts thrown into the former lake, and offer a rare insight into the arts and crafts of the Celts. The offering of gifts to the "Gods" was a widespread tradition for the Celts, as evidenced by the findings from Llyn Fawr, Llyn Cerrig Bach and as a further example, Flag Fen.
The finds at Llyn Fawr include two massive bronze cauldrons, bronze axes and sickles, bronze horse harness gear, a triangular shaving razor, and part of a finely decorated iron sword with bone handle. The sword is rare, an example of imported military equipment. It and the cauldrons are now on display at the National Museum in Cardiff.
At the Lake, Rhiannon and Geraint have their next adventure in a Crannog. A Crannog is a house built on stilts in a lake. There are many Crannogs found in Scotland and Ireland, but only one known site has been found in Wales at Llangorse Lake.
But if there were to be one, this would have made an ideal location, so who knows?
