On Friday 22 March, Theatr Brycheiniog was the venue for an excellent and very well-attended lecture by Professor Prys Morgan entitled ‘Writing History- the world of Theophilus Jones, our county historian.’

Theophilus Jones (1758 – 1812) published his great book ‘The History of the County of Brecknock’ in two volumes in 1805 and 1809. In his lecture the eminent and engaging Prys Morgan, Emeritus Professor at Swansea University, explored Jones’ life and work in the light of his own insights into, what he has called, the Eighteenth Century Renaissance in Wales.
