“Dylan Rees has synthesized a vast range of new material into a dynamic, fresh narrative of Carmarthenshire’s past . . . A most welcome new county history: modern, accessible, concise but wide-ranging.” –Thomas Lloyd, author of The Lost Houses of Wales and co-author of Pembrokeshire in The Buildings of Wales series
“An elegantly written and comprehensive survey of the history of Carmarthenshire from prehistoric times to the present day. The author, who is a native of the county, examines its formative changes and developments in all aspects of life and activity and places them within a broader historical context. It is an attractive volume which will appeal to historians and the general reader.” –Professor J. Gwynfor Jones, Cardiff University
