Gravestone of Welsh Knight in Wales
Bangor Museum, Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales,
Bangor Friary Medieval Gravestone 1250 - 1280. The grave slab is one of three found at the original site of the Bangor Friary and now displayed in Bangor Museum. All three slabs are decorated with floriated crosses and foliage ornament, which is typical of the late 13th and early 14th Centuries.

The first mention of the Dominican Friary in Bangor is in 1251 and it is likely that it was founded under the patronage of Llywelyn the Great. The original site of the Friary was close to the shore of the Menai Straits in Hirael. After Edward 1’s conquest of Wales the Friary was damaged and the site was moved inland. The three grave slabs in the Bangor collection come from the site of the original Friary.

This stone slab has a sword and shield and indicates that it marked the grave of a medieval Welsh knight. This slab is to be found under the stairs in Bangor Museum.
