Various historic finds have been unearthed in the area around Mold, the most important being a beautifully decorated gold cape. The cape is now in the British Museum, with a copy displayed in Mold Heritage Centre. A stone tablet marks the place where the original cape was discovered. The existing settlement of Mold dates from Norman times, when a castle was built on Bailey Hill, probably by Robert de Montalt, Lord of Mold. It is thought that the name ‘Mold’ is derived from the name ‘Montalt’, in Normandy.
