Much can be said for a nation as proud and ancient as Wales. It is a nation that reaches far back into the shadows of history, from where it struggled to retain its freedom and proud culture. Of Celtic and Brittonic origins, the Welsh people were always fighting fiercely to protect their land's boundaries and preserve their heritage, language, and customs. It is from that fight that a proud sovereign nation emerged, now a respected part of the United Kingdom. Through centuries and ups and downs, this nation left behind a fantastic historic record giving us a lot to explore and write about. In the pages of this book, we will retrace the steps of the Welsh, from the dark ages of Stone and Bronze, through the tumultuous times of the Romans and Anglo-Saxons, on through the fierce Middle Ages, and ultimately the flight into the near-modern times. Perhaps rightly called the “last of the Britons,” the modern Welsh people are proud of their ancient Celtic origins, which they preserved even in the face of conquests and attacks from invaders. We will explore this ancient heritage and closely examine the sources of the modern-day Welsh people, their unique language, and their connections with other modern Celtic nations.
