Chwedlau’r Llan: Seintiau o Benfro i’r Fflint

Ar Ddydd Gŵyl Dewi cofiwn y rhan sylfaenol a chwaraeodd moliant y seintiau yng nghymdeithas Cymru cyn y Diwygiad Protestannaidd. Bydd y sgwrs hon gan Dr David Parsons yn trafod testunau Cymraeg yr Oesoedd Canol ynglŷn â’r seintiau, ac yn archwilio’r cysylltiad cryf gyda llefydd ac ardaloedd penodol.
