Cyflwyniad cynhwysfawr i hanes cyfoethog Sir Benfro wedi'i ysgrifennu mewn arddull ysgolheigaidd ond hawdd ei ddarllen.

A comprehensive introduction to Pembrokeshire's rich history written in a scholarly yet popular style.
The general title of the series, of which this is a part, is ‘The Histories of Wales’ and the intention is eventually to cover each region of the country. The series began with Anglesey and was followed by Carmarthenshire. Both were first-rate titles aimed at those with a particular interest in regional history and more general readers who may feel that they wish to enhance their knowledge of the various strands of Welsh history generally.

Roger Turvey writes in a most engaging way. The timespan is wide and he begins with an account of Pembrokeshire in the prehistoric period and ends in the twenty-first century.

The most interesting chapter for me was the one covering the nineteenth century, purely because I am hooked on the events and personalities which rose to prominence then. Mr Turvey covers the political, religious and educational changes of the times. Both the notorious Treason of the Blue Books and the Rebecca Riots are dealt with in an interesting way.

The author’s love of Pembrokeshire is apparent throughout, despite the fact that he is a native of the neighbouring county of Carmathen. ‘Pembrokeshire,’ he writes, ‘takes its place as one of the most beguiling and intriguing places within an united Wales.’ Few will argue with that.

Gwybodaeth Bellach:
What is or what was Pembrokeshire? Of course a place is more than simply a geographical expression or political entity – it is about the people who live, work and die there. To those who live there today it is the premier county of Wales, God's own country in fact, and to the majority of outsiders it is a pleasant place to holiday. But what unifies both groups is not simply the wonderful countryside, the breathtaking scenery, the lush beaches or the temperate climate, but the many monuments that dot the county and the rich history associated with them: iron-age hill-forts, Neolithic burial chambers, early Christian inscribed stones and crosses, medieval castles, churches and monasteries, gentry mansions, fine harbours, slate quarries, lime-kilns, ruins galore in fact. The list is endless, and so it seems is the county’s capacity to generate exciting history, for though there might not be much left to discover, there remains a great deal yet to be written.
'Dr Roger Turvey is familiar with the wider aspects of the rich history of the county and he has devoted his special talent to write this concise, comprehensive and readable book.'
Dillwyn Miles, President of the Pembrokeshire Historical Society
'Having published his excellent account of the treason and trial of Sir John Perrot, Roger Turvey has now blended chronology and themes in a readable and informative new short history of Pembrokeshire.'
Professor Gareth Elwyn Jones, Emeritus Professor of Education, University of Wales
