The Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion sends its sympathy to the family and friends of Jan Morris on the announcement of her death on 20th November. Jan Morris embraced her Welsh heritage and her contribution as a writer and an historian was considerable. This was recognised by the many organisations which honoured her including the Society. In 2016 she was awarded our Cymmrodorion Medal which is given for distinguished service and notable work in Wales and beyond at a family celebration with members of the Society in north Wales.  Her work will live on.
