Welsh History

Owain Glyndwr

"[in Glyndwr]...here was a leader who combined the bravery of a Hector, the wizardry of a Merlin and the elusiveness of a Scarlet Pimpernel."
R.R. Davies, The Revolt of Owain Glyndwr 1995.

"The chronicler of Saint Albans believed that Glyndwr dabbled in magic to control the weather."

Gerald of Wales on the origin of the Welsh nation:
"The Saxons, when they seized upon Britain, called this nation, as they did all foreigners, Wallenses; and thus the barbarous name remains to the people and their country."
from 'The Description of Wales' by Geraldus Cambrensis

Gerald of Wales on the Welsh diet:
"Almost all the people live upon the produce of their herds, with oats, milk, cheese, and butter; eating flesh in larger proportions than bread."
from 'The Description of Wales' by Geraldus Cambrensis

Gerald of Wales on Welsh independence:
"They anxiously study the defence of their country and their liberty; for these they fight, for these they undergo hardships, and for these willingly sacrifice their lives."
from 'The Description of Wales' by Geraldus Cambrensis

Gerald of Wales on Welsh hospitality:
"Those who arrive in the morning are entertained till evening with the conversation of young women, and the music of the harp; for each house has its young women and harps allotted to this purpose."
from 'The Description of Wales' by Geraldus Cambrensis

Gerald of Wales on the Welsh intellect:
"These people being of a sharp and acute intellect, and gifted with a rich and powerful understanding, excel in whatever studies they pursue, and are more quick and cunning than the other inhabitants of a western clime."
from 'The Description of Wales' by Geraldus Cambrensis

Gerald of Wales on Wales:
"It is a country very strongly defended by high mountains, deep valleys, extensive woods, rivers, and marshes; insomuch that from the time the Saxons took possession of the island the remnants of the Britons, retiring into these regions, could never be entirely subdued either by the English or by the Normans."
from 'The Description of Wales' by Geraldus Cambrensis
