It had been a busy visit home for Lyn as he delivered the Welsh Centre for International Affairs’ Anniversary Lecture, entitled ‘Back to the Big Bang’ at The Temple of Peace, Cardiff; as well as delivering a lecture to Engineering students at Cardiff University on the previous day. On the same day as he visited Aberdare he also visited the University of Glamorgan.
