Carmarthenshire by Dylan Rees

Book Description

This single volume history of 'Sir Gar' (Carmarthenshire), Wales' largest county spans the period of the earliest recorded occupation through the various phases of history from prehistoric times down to the present day. The emergence, disappearance and re-emergence of the county is traced and developed from the age of the princes to the creation of the present boundaries, which were laid down during the Act of Union of the reign of Henry VIII. Key themes traced relate to politics, the economy, society, culture and religion. Where possible extracts from contemporary sources are used and the most up to date research of modern historians and archaeologists is incorporated into the text. The impact of national events upon the country is also considered from the Roman Invasion, Glyndwr's rebellion, Tudor policy to the various wars of the last two centuries. Significant events and movements which started within the county such as the Circulating Schools and the Rebecca Riots are also examined. Where possible the contribution of leading Carmarthenshire figures in a national context is explored.
