"A Short History of Wales"

Happened across this on Gutenberg the other day:

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3260

It's quite a good read, lively and well-written. It touches on the connections between Welsh words and Latin, among other things. It also has lots of battles that sound like something out of Game of Thrones. Enjoy!


Edit: glad to see a few people have noticed this. I've read several chapters now. It's interesting to see events in English history described from a Welsh point of view, though one has to take some of them with a large grain of salt. Still, as a quick introduction I'm quite enjoying it.

I'll have to read through that when I have some more free time, but in school history lessons, Welsh history was easily my favourite topic - lots went on over here over the past couple millennia!

Interesting! It'll take me some time to read, and I'll let you know about my reading experience after I finish reading it.

Thanks!

" If you are a stranger, you will think of it as “Wales”—a strange country; if you are Welsh, you will think of it as “Cymru”—a land of brothers."

A passionate man wrote this book ^^.
