Further Information:
'Pirate, poet, landowner, arms dealer, courtier, spendthrift, perhaps a spy, the handsome and charming Piers Griffith was one of the most colourful and mysterious Welshmen of the Elizabethan age. In this lively account Glenys Mair Lloyd takes us on a fascinating quest for the man behind the legends. Drawing on a wealth of historical documents and especially on the Welsh poetry composed by the pirate himself and his contemporaries, she brings vividly to life both Piers and the dangerous times in which he lived.'
Dr Ceridwen Lloyd-Morgan.
