2 Welsh history: text resources

2.1 Introduction

Each of the selections in this section is taken from one of the volumes in the Welsh history and its sources series. Each book contained an introductory overview followed by a series of essays. Each one of these essays was linked and cross-referenced to documentary source material that the author had investigated when writing her/his essay.

The introductory essays from each of the seven volumes are included here, along with one essay from each volume and the source materials that are related to it. Each essay can be accessed by selecting the view document option. The essay will then be presented as a PDF document in a separate window.

Throughout the essays, you will see words in italics. Some of the authors use italics for the Welsh language, but italics also indicate entries in the glossary in Section 9. If you look up these words in the glossary, you will find some more information about them.
