The Welsh Academy Encyclopaedia of Wales, Hardback

The Welsh Academy Encyclopaedia of Wales Hardback

Edited by John Davies, Nigel Jenkins, Menna Baines


"The Welsh Academy Encyclopaedia of Wales" will become known as the definitive reference works about Wales, containing entries on all the people and places which have made it so culturally, historically and geographically rich.

Everything is contained within the covers of this magnificent book; Snowdonia to the pampas of Patagonia, folk heroes to Welsh Olympians, and the men and women of Wales who have excelled in art, culture and politics.

This will be the first time all this material has been drawn together in one place.

With over 5000 entries ranging from 50 to over 5000 words and over 300 colour and black and white illustrations, it is an ambitious undertaking and long overdue.

No other work has covered so many aspects of Wales' past, its people, places, arts, industries, environment and traditions.
