EVIDENCE of 'high status' feasting was unearthed during an archaeological dig at Cardigan Castle - the site of the first eisteddfod in 1176.

And excavations have also revealed medieval structures that are strongly believed to have belonged to the original castle of Lord Rhys - the first castle to be built in stone by a Welshman.

Lord Rhys celebrated the completion of his castle with a musical and poetical celebration in Cardigan during Christmas 1176 - now known as the first eisteddfod.
