The Owain Glyndŵr Society was established to honour the memory of one of the greatest figures in Welsh history.
In addition, it has three specific aims: * To erect a fitting monument to Owain Glyndŵr; * To attempt to identify the grave of Owain; * To endow a scholarship in his name.
The Society is non-political and non-sectarian, and has the support of prominent figures in Welsh life.
It operates a full bilingual policy and is a registered charity
A monument was unveiled in Machynlleth on September 16th, 2000 to celebrate the 600th anniversary of Owain’s proclamation as Prince of Wales.
The Society has been active in: * Campaigning vigorously for greater recognition of Owain’s unique contribution to our history; * Presenting displays at events such as the National Eisteddfod, the Urdd Eisteddfod and St. Fagans; * Commissioning lectures from eminent historians.
