History Matters is working with the support of the Powis Estate and Cadw to create a host of special events at Ty Mawr medieval hall near Castle Caereinion, Montgomeryshire in Mid Wales.
This medieval aisled hall dates from 1460, was restored in 1998 and now opens its doors to the public whilst hosting special living history displays and re-enactments.
We plan to develop an outdoor education centre for the teaching of 'hands on history' and as a centre for traditional skills and crafts in the setting of an open air archaeological museum where we can undertake experimental archaeology.

Working with students of all ages and volunteers from across the globe we aim to authentically construct a medieval timber framed barn, a medieval kitchen , pottery kiln and medicinal herb garden and outdoor bread ovens.
Starting in the summer of 2009 we hosted a group of 12 International Volunteers with the UNA Exchange Wales to start developing the site.
2010 was 550 years since the building of Ty Mawr ailsed hall which we celebrated with our special events and Open Days.....
During 2013 we hosted 2 International volunteer living history projects at Ty Mawr details can be found HERE
