Gŵyl Archaeoleg – Cyfarfod â’r Brawd Thomas yn Abaty Tyndyrn

Come and meet Brother Thomas, a Cistercian monk. As the cellarer of Tintern Abbey, he will be able to tell you all there is to know (and perhaps some things you shouldn’t know!) about the workings of the abbey, his fellow monks, the lay brothers and other ‘less religious’ people!
You will learn about the daily life of the monks at the abbey, including their monastic duties, hygiene and eating habits, as well as the numerous religious services they would have to attend throughout the day.

Dewch i gyfarfod â’r Brawd Thomas sy’n fynach Sistersaidd. Yn rhinwedd ei swydd fel selerydd Abaty Tyndyrn, bydd yn gallu datgelu’r oll sydd i’w wybod (ac efallai rhai pethau na ddylech wybod!) ynglŷn â’r drefn yn yr abaty, ei gyd-fynaich, y brodyr lleyg a phobl eraill ‘llai crefyddol’!
Byddwch yn dysgu am fywyd bob dydd y mynaich yn yr abaty, yn cynnwys eu dyletswyddau mynachaidd, hylendid ac arferion bwyta, yn ogystal â’r gwasanaethau crefyddol niferus y byddai’n rhaid iddyn nhw eu mynychu drwy’r dydd.
