New, updated edition of the richly illustrated introduction to the history of the changing face of the Welsh landscape from prehistoric times to the present day in relation to social, industrial and political developments. Over 250 colour and black-and-white photographs, maps and drawings. First published in 1999; ISBN 9780750921763 (0750921765).
John Davies' The Making of Wales is really a visceral history of the country, a digging down to the very roots of a landscape that has been shaped by over two hundred generations of inhabitants. You can easily imagine the dirt under the author's fingernails as he gouges his way with obvious glee into the past, charting the changing face of Wales through millennia of human interaction with land, from the earliest hunter-gatherers through to the post-devolution reshaping of the twenty-first century.

This edition, completely revised from the one first published in 1996, is a book to dip into and enjoy. Beginning by overlooking the Gower in the Neolithic age, it charts Wales' physical development as the country and its inhabitants pass through the bronze and iron ages, the rise of the Roman empire, the influence of Christianity, the Norman invasion, the Middle Ages, industrialisation, war and depression, the land being bent and shaped through the passing centuries.

Liberally illustrated with photographs of Wales' physical, architectural and industrial landmarks, its short chapters are packed with facts and insight. John Davies, probably best known for his definitive A History of Wales, has taken a novel approach to telling the story of this nation. Like an aged weather-beaten face that reveals a life well-lived in its lines and wrinkles, Davies examines the built and living heritage of a country that has been made and remade over time to create a unique landscape with many stories to tell.
