History of Snowdonia

Snowdonia has been inhabited since prehistoric times, from 600BC we have evidence of Bronze age gold mining, and there are many remains of this in the area. The area has also been farmed for 9000 years at least. Despite not being conquered by the Romans the Vikings, Normans and Anglo-Saxons have left remains of occupation after many battles for the area. Many castles and forts were built for protection, some by the Welsh and some by their opposing forces.

The first person to climb Snowdon, the largest mountain in the area, is not known, though it became popular after 1771.
