More About the Author

Paul Remfry was brought up in the Marches of Wales where he has lived for most of his life. He has always been interested in castles and history.

Working as a consultant in history he has published numerous works on his research compiled from his own translations of the original medieval documents and numerous site visits. He has also appeared on several documentaries, the last one being with Dan Snow at Grosmont castle. His books abound with copious quotes and references as well as his own photographs and plans.

Format: Paperback
Remfry's love of the field shows. His many detailed and sometimes long notes on the entries are a major asset for anyone seriously examining the Annales Cambriae. His discussion of how the Annales came to be in their present form is helpful and well worth reading. This is importantly the first clear source of the C manuscript I have found - it is not available online. It is a great swizz that the D (Exeter) manuscript is not also included.

Be aware that only Remfry's (good) English translation, not the original texts, is given and that the dating used, the conventional one that adds 444 to the figures in the A manuscripto convert them to the CE calendar, is debatable.

One can argue with some of Remfry's assertions (about the entry for 682 for example), but that is the nature of history. The Camlann entry is omitted from the translation of the A version by mistake.
