Cardiganshire by Mike Benbough-Jackson

Book Description

This book examines this most distinctive of Welsh counties. The author will discuss the landscape, people, customs and significant centres of religious worship in their historical context from the dark ages to the recent past. Cardigan has contributed much to Welsh culture: the first Eisteddfod held by Lord Rhys at Cardigan Castle in 1176, the founding of colleges at Lampeter and Aberystwyth in the nineteenth century and the National Library in the early twentieth, as well as the significant monastic sites of Strata Florida, Llanbadarn Fawr and Llangeitho makes this county a great contributor to the culture of Wales, both past and present. The author also discusses less well trodden aspect of Cardiganshire's past - emigration due to poverty, geographical differences between parts of the county, as well as superstition and sport, are all woven into this volume.
