Description - Mysterious Wales by Chris Barber

Wales is a land haunted by its own past, with a treasure trove of beautiful and magical places - some rarely visited. Chris Barber guides explorers to prehistoric megaliths, remote stone circles, burial chambers, secret caves, lonely lakes and `bottomless' pools. Many sites in Wales are associated with King Arthur, Merlin and other remarkable magicians, the Devil, fairies and water nymphs. Linked with the Golden Age of Celtic Saints are primitive churches, ancient crosses, inscribed memorial stones, island sanctuaries and holy wells, which all have romantic legends adding to their mystery. With the help of his own illuminating photographs and illustrations, Chris Barber unlocks the ancient past, and evokes the wealth of tradition that makes Wales such an enchanting country to visit and explore.
