Today’s video is of Caer Gybi a small Roman fortlet located at the centre of Holyhead within the county of Anglesey, North Wales, which was once in the Roman province of Britannia.
The three-walled fort, with it's fourth side facing the sea is probably the site of a quay, for mooring boats. In the 6th century, the fort was given to Saint Cybi who founded a monastery on the site. Although the monastery has long since gone, within the walled fort today you will find the Church of St Cybi.
