The subject of "Celtic Wales" is the archaeological and historical evidence for human settlement in what is now Wales, from about 700BC - AD1000. This book puts Celtic Wales in its European context, and tackles issues of academic debate concerning "Celticity" and ethnic identity. It discusses Wales during the pre-Roman Iron Age and Roman periods, exploring such topics as regional diversity in settlement, tribal identity, economy and trade, art and religion. Additionally, chapter three examines the interaction between Celtic Wales and the Roman empire, looking at conquest, conflation and resistance. Chapters four and five deal with Wales in the early Christian and medieval periods, exploring issues such as the transition from civitas to kingdom. It then goes on to examine the early medieval myths of Wales, asking such questions as, to what extent such tales resonate with earlier periods, perhaps as a result of the percolation of oral tradition.
