Description

This volume traces the island's rich history as the last stronghold of the druids; through its strategic significance during the Edwardian conquest in medieval times; Telford's major achievement in building the Menai Suspension Bridge, to the cultural and linguistic challenges of the late twentieth century. The concept of 'love of one's region' has always had a special resonance for the people of Wales. It has inspired poets, writers and historians through the centuries and it has enriched our appreciation and understanding of the colourful diversity of our local and regional culture and heritage. The authors have been selected both for their undoubted scholarship and intimate knowledge of their own particular regions and for their ability to interpret and communicate that knowledge in a lively and concise style to students, scholars and tourists alike.
