Trefor M. Owen’s seminal work educates, enlightens and entertains with a far-reaching yet accessible text, which paints a colourful and comprehensive portrait of a nation’s rich folk culture. The Customs and Traditions of Wales is an illuminating and engrossing insight into a subject that continues to unfold and develop in contemporary life. Despite an increasingly globalised society that has transformed local communities, folk customs are still practised and enjoyed the world over as people combine modern-day and historical rituals and embrace opportunities to learn about their past, and Owen’s influential study has maintained its relevance as customs change and evolve.

Domestic Life in Wales is an essential and fascinating source of information on Welsh customs, traditions and domestic culture. Based on oral evidence gathered during the twentieth century and on documentary evidence from a variety of sources and periods, it covers topics ranging from traditional foods to the covering of table legs, and from crafts such as stocking-knitting and cheese-making to the effect of the coming of electricity on Welsh home life. The late S. Minwel Tibbott was a pioneer in the field of women's studies in Wales and an acknowledged expert in the study of domestic life and traditional foods. Domestic Life in Wales brings many of Minwel Tibbott's writings together as a tribute to her contribution to folk life and women's studies. This volume demonstrates the variety and depth of Minwel Tibbott's research, as well as offering a particularly accessible and readable introduction to Welsh domestic history. It will be essential reading for all those interested in the social and cultural history of Wales, folk life and food history, but is also likely to be of interest to a wider audience including those who can still remember some of the traditional ways described.

In A Pocket Guide: Celtic Wales, Miranda Green and Ray Howell provide a wide-ranging and accessible introduction to a rich and complex phase of Wales’s past as they examine the archaeological and historical evidence for settlement in Wales from about 700 B.C. to AD 1000, a period which has long been labeled as “Celtic.” This well-illustrated book puts Celtic Wales in its European context and contributes to current debates on Celticity and ethnic identity. It also examines the unity and diversity of Celtic Wales from Iron Age settlement and Roman occupation through the early Christian and medieval periods, exploring topics such as tribal identity, economy and trade, art and religion, the interaction between Celtic and Roman Wales, and early medieval myths.

Dafydd Ap Gwilym Author Huw M. Edwards

One of the great innovators of medieval literature, Dafydd ap Gwilym's poetic voice is as distinctive and resonant as those of his more celebrated contemporaries Chaucer and Boccaccio. This book - the first major study of the largely submerged popular verse tradition of medieval Wales, and its likely enriching effect on the repertoire of the professional poets - examines Dafydd's use both of the native popular verse tradition and of the pervasive conventions of northern French verse to forge a new kind of poetry for a new age. Composing in the wake of the Edwardian conquest of Wales, Dafydd (fl. c. 1330-70) and a few kindred spirits sought to adapt and revitalize an already sophisticated bardic culture by expanding its subject-matter to include a surprising variety of entertainment as well as formal praise. Huw M. Edwards sets out the first detailed comparison of Dafydd's verse with the highly influential poetry of northern France, in terms of themes, motifs, and poetic genres, since the publication of the authentic canon in 1952. The poet's bold and often playful handling of borrowed conventions will be of interest to all students of medieval poetry.

"Jones's sense of place is acute, and his passion for the landscape—for its colors, its creatures, its textures, its scents—is absolutely magnetic."—Sarah Waters "A dark, tense, and vital short novel. . . . Profound, powerful, and utterly absorbing."—The Guardian "It is a book about the essentials: life and death, cruelty and compassion. It is a book that will get in your bones, and haunt you."—Daily Telegraph "Cynan Jones's fourth novel, The Dig, is an extraordinarily powerful work—not in spite of its brevity but because of it. . . . In its marriage of profound lyricism and feeling for place, deep human compassion and unflinching savagery, this brief and beautiful novel is utterly unique."—Financial Times Built of the interlocking fates of a badger-baiter and a farmer struggling through lambing season, The Dig unfolds in a stark rural setting where man, animal, and land are at loggerheads. There is no bucolic pastoral here: this is pure, pared-down rural realism, crackling with compressed energy, from a writer of uncommon gifts. Cynan Jones was born near Aberaeron, Wales, in 1975. He is the author of three novels, The Long Dry (winner of a Betty Trask Award, 2007), Everything I Found on the Beach (2011), and The Dig (2014), winner of the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize. He is also the author of Bird, Blood, Snow (2012), the retelling of a medieval Welsh myth. The Dig is his first novel published in the United States.
