Wales History of a Nation by David Ross - updated

198 x 123mm 320 pages

Wales History of a Nation is now in its third edition. Useful for students studying Welsh history, this book has a 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.
