Description
An entertaining romp through history in bite-size chunks. Hundreds of little-known facts, curious anecdotes and bizarre-but-true tales for an alternative, potted history of the countries of mainland Britain. Welsh History: did you know that 18th century nobleman Sir John Pryce of Newtown Hall kept the embalmed bodies of his first two wives on either side of his bed, only removing them at the insistence of his third wife? That Ronald Rhys from the Vale of Neath reported an alien abduction in 1856? Or that the Holy Grail is kept in a bank vault in West Wales? All this and more!
