Historical Description

Maesygarmod, an ancient battlefield in the S of Flintshire, 1 mile W of Mold. The British Christians, under St Germanus, encountered the Saxons and Piets here in 448, advanced against them with a loud shout of " Alleluia," and gamed over them what is called the " Victoria Alleluiatica." A stone column in commemoration of the victory was erected on the field on 1736.
