5.0 out of 5 stars The archaeology of the Isle of Anglesey, 2 Feb 2008
By 
Robert Williams "LLYFRAU MAGMA" (Ynys Môn / Anglesey) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Prehistoric Anglesey: The archaeology of the island to the Roman conquest (Studies in Anglesey history) (Hardcover)
This is the second edition of this definitive study, written with the general reader in mind and copiously illustrated. In addition to the main text - the archaeology of this exceptionally rich and interesting island up to the coming of the Romans - the book includes an introductory section discussing views and interpretations of prehistory in Britain, and appendices listing radiocarbon dates, environmental data and bronze analyses.
-----------------------
For a thoroughly unreliable (but nevertheless fascinating) eighteenth century view of the history of the island, see the facsimile reprint of Henry Rowlands's pioneering study of 1723, Mona Antiqua Restaurata . An Archaeological Discourse on the Antiquities Natural and Historical of the Isle of Anglesey , the Antient Seat of the British Druids, and the anonymous 1775 supplement to this work, now also available in facsimile, A History of the Island of Anglesey: From Its First Invasion by the Romans, Until Finally Acceded to the Crown of England.
The 2008 reprint of Angharad Llwyd's essay of 1832, A History of the Island of Mona, or Anglesey is another readable and informative account, taking us on a tour of `Mona' (Anglesey) as it was in the early decades of the nineteenth century, recounting the history of the island - so far as it was understood at the time - along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars land of my fathers, 12 May 2014
By 
R. W. Hughes "hugdavliv" (exiled welshman) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Prehistoric Anglesey (Hardcover)
Currently reading this excellent book and thoroughly enjoying, particularly appreciate the updates in knowledge and evidence from 1st edition. As my fathers family are from Ynys Mon and my y dna is R1b L21, the pre history of Ynys Mon is very personal. I can relate to the geographical sites, very well. My only suggestions are , a map of the sites on the island would have been useful, the title ought to have included Ynys Mon and a bibliography would have been useful to.
