The poems and photographs in Remains of Elmet demonstrate the "rummaging of light/ At the end of the world."('Long Screams') (Hughes' use of the verb, here, is deliberately ambiguous, as light both rummages and is rummaged).

 WHY
At that time, the leader of Elmet was Gwallawg ap Lleenawg, although the only identifiably-named warrior from Elmet mentioned by Aneirin is Madog Elfed, described as ‘adwythig sgwydog’, or a deadly shield-bearer (see stanza above).
Elmet itself fell to Edwin of Northumbria, who defeated Gwallawg’s son, Ceredig, in 617 CE.
From that time on, much of the upper classes of Elmet - the nobility, clergy, druids, bards, and so forth - would have moved westwards, particularly into North Wales, much as their compatriots from Strathclyde were forced to do in the centuries to come.
