THE MERTHYR RISING
Gwyn A. Williams
pp 237 reprinting Feb 2003 paperback
ISBN 0-7083-1014-1
On 2 June 1831, thousands of workers under a red flag broke into insurrection. The rebels drove the military out of the town and were crushed only after some 800 troops had concentrated at Merthyr. One man was hanged as an example: Richard Lewis, a miner of twenty-three, known as Dic Penderyn. Today, Dic Penderyn is more alive than Richard Lewis ever was: as a martyr and folk hero, he has lived on in the memory of south Wales.
Gwyn Williams examines in depth the reality and the mythology of that martyrdom; he tells the story of this remarkable year in detail and largely through the words of the people who bore witness. He argues that the events of 1831 in Merthyr were central to the emergence of a working class in south Wales: in that year its pre-history came to an end and its history began.
`The author tells the story with the authority and inimitable style which make him such a major figure among historians in Wales.' (Teaching History)
`Gwyn Williams tells his story with splendid Welsh hwyl, marked by an instinctive sympathy and sensitivity to time and place that makes it a model presentation of its kind.' (History Today)
