Pages & Document Description:
31 - 50; fig; refs
Documentary and archaeological researches have advanced to the point where it is possible to discuss early evidence for administrative boundaries, particularly where relationships between secular and ecclesiastical estates can be deduced, as at Llysworney/Llantwit Major (with RB precedent), Margam/Kenfig, and Llandough/ Dinas Powys. The early kingdoms had become cantrefs by 11th century.
