Clynnog fawr
The oldest part of the church is a stone corbel roof dating back to the early 6th century? There too is a Sundial of Irish orgin placed against the south elevation with an estimated date c. 10th centry. However the church was partly destroyed in 988 AD by Norse Raiders (Davies 1990, 51).
Internnally the Church rood screen has been reproduced in the 16th century. Such a screen was errected originally to hide the rituals undertaken by the church ministers within the church thus hiding their magical process from the main congreation. Generally this was a response during the rise of paganism in the 14th century and in away. removed the visible magical rites of the church from view of the worshipers (Scribers 1993).
