Overview

Both the history and landscape of Wales are extraordinarily diverse and undeniably powerful, Dramatic mountains, narrow valleys, beautiful coastlines, peaceful villages, and bustling towns all echo with the resolute identity of a nation which has survived, over the centuries, the ravages, the invasions, and the bloody battles of history. Richard Keen and Ian Burgum take us on a fascinating journey through this beautiful land. Steeped in a rich folklore of giants, devils, fairies, witches and ghosts, the Welsh countryside is covered with many fascinating monuments and ancient ritual sites -- from neolithic burial chambers or medieval castle ramparts, to forgotten eighteenthcentury gardens or the abandoned workings of a Victorian coal mine.
