THE TOUR GUIDE'S GUIDE TO ART - ST FAGAN'S NATIONAL HISTORY MUSEUM, NEAR CARDIFF
Sara Huws, a Learning Interpreter at the museum, tells us about her favourite item:Find out more about St Fagan's National History Museum
"It may not look like much, but my favourite thing at the museum is the timber frame of Hendre'r Ywydd. You can see its dowels sticking out behind me. The cruck frames were chopped down and assembled around 1504, and they held a roof over successive owners' heads until 1962, when the whole house was dismantled, moved and re-erected at the museum. I've cooked on its hearth, told stories around the fire, harvested food from the garden and even found its original location, in Denbighshire, last year.
It may be hidden under limewash, but with my hands I can trace the grain, feel all the different repairs and the knots in the wood. I like to think that these trees were saplings on the day, five miles away, Rhuthun burned to the ground during Glynd?r's Rebellion. It amazes me that something so easy to miss - the building itself - can link us to that smoke, that destruction and devestation. Every rivet, dowel, truss and brick at St Fagans tells a story, and that's why I love it here."
