Journal of the Society for the Interpretation of Britain's Heritage

“. . . a lively informative polemic . . . which will be essential reading for anyone interested in tracing the origins, state and direction of the Heritage Game in Wales . . . J. Geraint Jenkins has made, with this enjoyable and vivacious set of essays, not the least of his contributions towards getting yesterday right.” –Journal of the Society for the Interpretation of Britain’s Heritage

Teaching History

“His survey of a wide range of heritage sites has a much wider significance than simply for the Principality.” –Teaching History

Archaeologica Cambrensis

“No one could be better qualified to write a book on interpreting the heritage of Wales than J. Geraint Jenkins . . . he expertly demonstrates what the reader should expect from his museums . . . his judgement is always informed by his expert detailed knowledge of artefacts and customs. And he is constantly thought-provoking, often voicing what few others would dare articulate . . .Jenkins does not mince his words and he writes with passion also about what needs to be done . . .” –Archaelogica Cambrensis
