Explore podcasts on iTunes U from our OU/BBC partnership production The Story of Wales. This series, presented by Huw Edwards, tells the story of Wales from pre-history to modern times - from Iron Age hillforts and the massive Roman presence in Wales, to Hywel Dda’s uniting of the country under one law and the battles of Welsh leaders like Llywelyn and Owain Glyndwr with Norman and English kings. It also explores Welsh at the heart of the Tudor court, takes us through change in the country as coal mines and iron works flourished — with technological and educational innovations putting Wales ahead of the world in the Industrial Revolution - and climaxes with devolution and the creation of a Welsh Government. In addition to the heroes and battles, the series reveals how so often, through the turbulent centuries, Wales has been at the cutting-edge of change and innovation.
