Sir Ifor Williams settled in Pontllyfni. A Welsh Teacher at the University of Wales, Bangor - a scholar, and Wales' foremost authority on 'Yr Hengerdd' (Wales' earliest poetry, and the Mabinogion) - he is the reason why so much pre-historic information on these subjects is available to us today. We as a people are very thankful for this gift.
