The Middle Ages was an age of laying down foundations of a nation state in Wales – Cyfraith Hywel was a highly admired code of law; the Welsh princes in times of serious threats from the English crown showed the ability to unite under one leader; poetry, prose and abbeys flourished. During the revolt of Owain Glyndŵr, Wales held its own parliament and allied with other European powers. This book is also a guide to many places of interest – castles, abbeys, battlefields, manor houses and parliament.
