A History Of Wales
A Brief History of Wales From the Romans onward, via Vikings, Saxons, Normans and Flemings, the Welsh have both resisted and absorbed invasion after invasion. Princes, papists, protestants, politicians, patriots, prophets and proletarians pass swiftly before us in this gripping narrative of conquest, resistance and survival. Both legend and fact play their part in this story, from the Night of the Long Knives to the 1905 .
Stretching from the Ice Ages to the present day, this masterful account traces the political, social and cultural history of the land that has come to be called Wales. Spanning prehistoric hill forts and Roman ruins to the Reformation, the Industrial Revolution and the series of strikes by Welsh miners in the late twentieth century, this is the definitive history of an enduring people: a unique and compelling exploration of the origins of the Welsh nation, its development and its role in the modern world.
