“One of the most striking features of the whole volume is the high quality of its lavish illustrations . . . This volume makes a massive contribution not only to the series of Welsh county histories, past and present, but also to our understanding of the general history of Wales. All those who have been concerned with its production deserve our wholehearted felicitations on bringing into being such a significant book .” –Glanmor Williams, Archaeologia Cambrensis
