Synopsis

Wales A Very Peculiar History by Rupert Mathews

From Roman invasion to tall tales of Merlin and King Arthur, and right up to the power of the mining industry, Wales - A Very Peculiar History takes a sideways look at some of the more peculiar aspects of the home of welsh rarebit, Maelgwn the Dragon, and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Featuring the full gamut of Welsh providence from the coal-mining years to its rebirth in the 1970s, this book tells a tale of ups and downs, of hills and valleys, and of hope and triumph against the odds, with a few leeks thrown in for good measure. Fact boxes, a full glossary and index make the book both fun and informative to use. The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings and full-colour endpapers.
