Am y llyfr

Mae’r gyfrol hon yn ymchwilio i brosesau hirdymor newidiadau cymdeithasol ac arferion anheddol yng Nghymru ar ddiwedd y cyfnod cynhanesyddol a dechrau’r Oesoedd Canol. Trwy ganolbwyntio ei hastudiaeth, mae’r gyfrol yn ymchwilio i archaeoleg anheddiad gogledd-orllewin Cymru (yn cwmpasu siroedd Gwynedd, Môn a gorllewin Conwy), dros gyfnod sy’n rhychwantu dwy fil o flynyddoedd o ddiwedd yr Oes Efydd hyd ar ddechrau’r cyfnod canoloesol.
