Welsh history and its sources

3 Welsh history: audio resources

3.1 Introduction

The following audio resource files are extracts from a series of seventeen BBC Radio Wales programmes first broadcast in 1999. They include discussion by eminent Welsh historians, many of whom have contributed to the essays presented in the previous text resources section.

It is important to point out that these are extracts from longer and more detailed discourses about the history of Wales, but they each contain important views and information that illustrate the nature of historical investigations into Welsh topics. The Welsh history and its sources site contains additional information about most of the periods and in some cases the topics that are the subjects of discussion. In addition the glossary and timelines will help you to contextualise the material.

To get the most out of this material it is worth listening to each audio clip more than once. In between each listening you should ask yourself what the key issues are about the subject that the speaker is addressing.
