I have listened to the first 13 episodes of Welsh History and I’m hooked! Very wide scope of historical material taught in a comprehensive manner citing multiple sources, all the while acknowledging that much scholarship is based on incomplete information and conjecture. Being the only member of my family not from Wales and having just returned from a “roots” tour, this podcast is well timed as I am thirsty, indeed, to reclaim the Welsh part of me.

A good and thorough look at Welsh history

I appreciate this podcast for its depth and breath as well as its particular focus on Welsh history and the ordinary people of what becomes Wales. Yet Williams also brings in the influence of surrounding tribes and even far away traders and empires. As an American of Welsh heritage, I’m grateful for this particular view rather than the more common look at the English history of Great Britain.
