Details

Wales in 100 Objects is a collection of miniature histories, each arising from a single physical object. The objects range in date from early prehistory to the present. Inside you'll find, among other things, a Roman sword from the first century BCE, the earliest manuscript of Hen wlad fy nhadau and a Raspberry Pi, the revolutionary computer designed to help children learn coding. Opposite stunning photographs by Rolant Dafis, Andrew Green's informative texts explain and explore each item. The objects are drawn from every part of Wales, and all are available to the public. A list of locations and map are included in the back of the book, to help you seek out these pieces of history for yourself. Also available in Welsh as: Cymru mewn 100 Gwrthrych
