The earliest prehistoric burial in Europe was found in Wales. The skeleton was known as the 'Red Lady of Paviland' - well, until scientists discovered that it had, in fact, belonged to a man...'Rhodri the Great', Wales' first king, was killed by a Saxon army. The second King of Wales was killed by his own men English armies usually contained Welsh bowmen. A Welsh-fired arrow could - and did - go all the way through armour, leg, saddle and horse. Welsh bowmen often used English longbows against them, firing them at point-blank range during ambushes This book contains hundreds of 'strange but true' facts and anecdotes about Welsh history. Arranged into a miniature history of Wales, and with bizarre and hilarious true tales for every era, it will interest and delight readers everywhere.
