Cardiganshire and the Cardi c. 1760 - c. 2000
Locating a Place and Its People
Distributed for University of Wales Press
Ceredigion, or Cardigan as it’s known in English, is a county and former kingdom in midwest Wales. Here Mike Benbough-Jackson investigates how the distinctively Welsh county and its inhabitants—known as Cardis—have been represented during the late modern era, a period in which the image of both has changed considerably. Benbough-Jackson analyzes the various opinions about the county that have emerged during the past few centuries, places them in context, and compares them alongside one another. The picture that emerges is of a place and a people onto which commentators projected their hopes and fears.
