PRE-NORMAN MONUMENTS IN GLAMORGAN. Mr T. B. Thomas, R.C.A., lectured on the pre-Norman monuments in the County of Glamor- gan on Tuesday evening, before tho Barry Literary aud Social Society. Captain Hamilton Murrell presided. Mr Thomas, in the course of his paper, gave some idea of the riches which this country possessed in monuments of a very early epoch, made before the Normans entered the country. These represeneed a distinctive school of art which belong to the Celtic branch, having been introduced <. almost directly from In-land, as is shown by certain local peculiarities, which relate the monuments rather to Irish examples than to those of other parts of Great Britain. The monuments selected for illustration were those executed in Glamorgan, as in other parts of Wales, during the period from the fifth to the tenth century—i.e., the period during which Celtic influences were predominant in this part of tbe country. Tho lecture was ill- ustrated by a large number of slides, after the photographs of Mr Mansell Franklen, of St. Hilary, lent by the Cardiff Naturalist Society. After describing the peculiarities of the mona- ments, and entering a plea for the re-introduction of such ornaments in our own times in all kinds of decoration, whether architectural or ornamental, the lecturer adverted to the fine group of monu- ments to be seen at Margam, and also those still more celebrated at Llantwit-Major, besides other isolated instances, such as the great shaft at Llan. dough, and examples at Coychurch, Merthyr Mawr, and Golden Grove. The lecture was listened to attentively throughout, and a hearty vote of thanks accorded Mr Thomas at the close.
