This chapter begins with a discussion of the history of Celtic Wales. Here, the inhabitants held fast to their ancient language and culture in the mountainous regions in the west of the island, having been cut off from the rest of Celtic Britain by the Anglo-Saxon conquests. It then discusses the early history of Christianity in Wales and the earliest Welsh literature.
