Revealing the true face of an iconic Welsh hero. A ground-breaking documentary will reveal the true face of Welsh rebel hero Owain Glyndŵr for the first time on television on St David’s Day.
Wyneb Glyndŵr (‘The Face of Glyndŵr’) will take us on a journey to recreate the face of the medieval Welsh Prince using the latest 3D and CGI computer-generated technology.
Owain Glyndŵr started a major rebellion against the English crown in 1400 and proclaimed himself Prince of Wales, but no-one knows what he looked like. This documentary is set to change all that.
The complex process of creating the head of Owain Glyndŵr started by making a basic mask from the Glyndwr marble statue in Cardiff City Hall. A great deal of in-depth research was carried out into the features of Owain Glyndŵr and evidence was gathered from ancient texts, libraries and old portraits.
