A snippet of information on maps of Glamorgan - the following is from the Glamorgan section of Ogilby's strip-map "The Road from London to St David's" first published in 1675. In South Wales during the 19th century the rapid development of heavy industries & coal mining created centres of dense populations where voluntary efforts to provide education in many areas proved inadequate & ineffective.

The uneven character of the ground made it impossible to detect at a glance any articial mound & the discovery was entirely accidental.

The main workings of the quarry had been flooded by the heavy rains and in the course of working a new face at a high level further to the east, a large slab of stone was met with, from beneath which a skull was dislodged & broken up before the character of the find was realised.

The names are of 2 classes - those holding lands in the county & those marked "test," who witness local charters and are found in the documents amongst local names. This third stage in the development of the coalfield inaugurated a whole succession of new colliery schools, most of which were located in the two Rhondda Valleys whilst many others were established in other colliery districts. Major Rugg kindly provided the necessary labour and has since deposited the finds in the National Museum of Wales.

There are no names connected with the ecclesiastical foundations. Stormy Down, a wind-driven stretch of heath, overgrown largely with scrub & pitted and broken by old and new quarry workings, borders the main road between Bridgend & Pyle, some 1.5 miles from the latter place (see 1).

It also provided a bearing to navigate the Nash Swatch channel. A few small colliery schools were beginning to appear during this period, before monetary grants began to flow from the government.

The necessity of an early record in determining the origin of a person is obvious - only collected forms to the end of the period c.1400 have been included here. Between 1840 & 1860 others were established as grants were forthcoming from the Committee of Privy Council, the Voluntary Societies became more active & when several government Commissions produced Reports on the State of Education in the Mining Districts. A woman should be employed to teach the younger children their letters, etc., and she might teach sewing to the girls in the afternoon.

Flints of this or similar type are common in Bronze Age burials (Eg., at Pendine, Carm. Camb., 1919, pp 323-352) & it seems probable that the man buried on Stomry Down was a member of the "colony" of the broad-headed people which occupied the coastal regions of South Wales - coming, perhaps from the Somerset side of the Bristol Channel (A suggestion offered by Dr Cyril Fox, F. Estimating the breadth of the skull from the parieto-occipital region, which it has been possible to build up from fragments, we get a measurement of 149mm suggesting that the maximum breadth of the skull is a little greater than this.

It was not possible to place in contact with this portion a fragment of the frontal bone which was present.

The coverstone, a large slab of Pennant sandstone, the source of which was probably not more than 2 miles away (I have to thank Dr. This earth was cleared out with some difficulty, care being taken to leave the skeleton as far as possible undisturbed. The earth in the grave contained a number of snail-shells. S., as belonging to two species; Cepaea hortensis (Muller) & Cepaea nemoralis (Linne).

The skeleton was found to be one of large size, strongly flexed, and lying on the left side, with head to the north (see fig.3). Those preserved have been indentified by my colleague, Mr J. The flint was found behind the pelvis of the skeleton (at the point A in fig.3) but its position, near the surface of the soil filling the grave, makes it practically certain that the implement was not in direct association wit the skeleton. A flint "knife" of somewhat similar type is said to have been found with a Beaker burial in Riley's Tumulus, on Merthyr Mawr Warren (Arch.

The bulk of the references collected are 12th & 13th century - as they have all been taken from the C. The final phase (from 1860 onwards) was associated with the rapid devleopment of the central Glamorgan coalfield, especially the steam-coal deposits of the Rhondda Valleys (for export purposes). Talbot MP of the Margam Estate (Owner of Bryndu Slip Colliery) started a temporary school in colliery stables, known as Bryndu Works School. Instruction as good as could be carried into effect during the short time the school has been erected; discipline good; methods good.
