Wales History of a Nation by David Ross - updated summer 2019

A bestselling book about the history of Wales, now in its third edition. Popular with students and those studying Welsh history, this book is very useful for its clear chronology of events in the story of the Welsh people's long journey through time to the present day.

As a country, Wales began with Henry VIII’s Act of Union in 1536. Before that time, Wales had been a loose collection of kingdoms and lordships with many incursions from Europe. With a history traceable to 250,000 BC, the Welsh are descended from many different peoples.

Wales History of a Nation explains how Wales developed from its Celtic origins, through its joining the Union and its social, political and industrial development from then through to the modern age.

This is a clear, excellent and popular introduction to Welsh history written by the bestselling historian David Ross. It is an ideal guide for the student, as well as the tourist.
