As might be expected, there is a greater abundance of corroborating material to support the later activities, and Kari Maund is careful to point out where tales have insufficient evidence to support them. While this candid approach is helpful, at times it becomes a little annoying and repetitive. The basic assumptions seem somewhat wrong to this reader - although there may indeed, as suggested, have been political machinations at work when certain ancient histories were written down by medieval scribes, it surely is also a possibility that they were authentic accounts made by diligent and impartial record-keepers. The presence of certain histories in only one ancient manuscript and not elsewhere, rather than being cause for questioning their reliability, might be because nobody would have felt a need to replicate an existing source. Ultimately however, having taken this approach does mean that the account of the Welsh Kings is as thorough as can be reliably sourced for a small volume, plus there is a reasonable bibliography for those who wish to explore some of the material in greater depth. This book contains more than 50 illustrations, all in black and white, some of which are photographs and others are the author's line drawings made at key locations. There are also some useful maps and family tree charts.
