Product Description:

Where is the most important place in the history of Wales? Hoping to answer this elusive question are the contributors to the latest book in the popular New History of Wales series Buildings and Places in Welsh History. Following on from the success of A New History of Wales launched at the Hay Festival in 2011 and Heroes and Villains in Welsh History launched at Hay in 2012 Professor Huw Bowen has again mobilized his team of historians to tell the stories of the great (and not so great) buildings and places in Welsh History. As Professor Bowen explains: 'It was primarily people who animated and shaped the world around them and individually and collectively their actions are what makes the past so interesting and of great importance to us all. But history is also all about place. This is because places provide the context for all human actions and like our ancestors we are all shaped by our environment: where we live work and visit.' Dr Peter Wakelin secretary of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales says a series such as this is essential to understanding messages from the past. This volume encourages readers to think critically about Welsh history while challenging myths and misconceptions about the significance of selected places and buildings.
