Snapshots of Welsh History

Snapshots of Welsh History

A fascinating collection of stories from Welsh history collected from Phil Carradice’s popular BBC Wales blog, gathered together for the first time in a book.



Among the incredible stories are…





The man from Clydach who invented a Death Ray

The Welsh aristocrat whose parrot once bit Herman Goering on the nose

The witch who cursed the launch of a warship at Pembroke Dockyard

The battle that was won by a herd of cows



These stories are part and parcel of Welsh heritage and make history interesting.



Snapshots of Welsh History – without the boring bits covers a wide range of Welsh history topics. Written in Phil’s unique easy-to-read yet elegant style, these stories are funny, tragic, sad and hilarious. Yet the one thing they all have in common is that they make compelling reading.
