Penmynydd on the Isle of Anglesey, off the northwest coast of Wales.The area is the ancestral lands of the Tudors and the great-great aunt/uncle of Henry VII are buried at the church.The Welsh translation: "Unity is like a rose on a river bank, and like a House of Steel on the top of a mountain". The Welsh of "House of Steel" is Ty Dur, or Tudor.The Beaufort portcullis was used by the Tudors since Margaret Beaufort was the source of Henry VII's thin claim to the throne.

Cypro-Minoan tablet from Enkomi is the earliest known Cypro-Minoan (CM) inscription. It was dated to ca. 1500 BC, and bore three lines of writing. Other fragments of clay tablets have been found at Enkomi and Ugarit, on the Syrian coast. The Cypro-Minoan (also known as Linear C) syllabary is an undeciphered syllabic script used on the island of Cyprus during the Late Bronze Age (ca. 1550-1050 BC).
