The nationalist movement of the 20th century brought about a resurgence in Welsh literature, though much of it was confined to universities or small journals. Written for everyone with an interest in the art and history of Wales, the volume illustrates landscapes and portrait paintings, prints and sculptures. They may even have had some prior expertise in iron, as the Maikop culture of the North Caucasus steppes has long been known for its early knowledge of metallurgy, notably bronze. The country stretches some miles km from north to south, and its east-west width varies, reaching 90 miles km across in the north, narrowing to about 40 miles 65 km in the centre, and widening again to more than miles km across the southern portion.

    The capital and main commercial and financial centre is Cardiff. In the absence of any noteworthy architecture during the Celtic era, one can readily comprehend the awe inspired by the magnificent Romanesqe and Gothic cathedrals with their sculptures, stained glass windows and other decorative artworks, which emerged out of the Dark Ages CE. Opened inthe synagogue is no longer there it was converted to offices after its sale in but the frontage remains and can be seen to this day. However, glaciers during the Pleistocene blanketed most of the landscape with till boulder clayscraped up and carried along by the underside of the great ice sheets, so that few soils can now be directly related to their parent rock. Every space is filled.

I've visited another early settlement on Skellig Michael off the coast of Kerry in the Atlantic and it is hard to express how bleak and remote those lives were. Hallstatt styles emerged about BCE, followed some two and half centuries later by the La Tene style.

The stained glass panels came from the collection of the Neave family, and include early sixteenth-century work commissioned for the Charterhouse of Leuven.

Another interesting parallel between the druids and the later Christian era in Ireland concerns their role as advisors. Acidic, leached podzol soils and brown earths predominate throughout Wales.
