Riassunto: The story of Wales tells the story of a people who have managed to retain much of their fullness of spirit despite a very early loss of most of their territory and political independence. It tells the story of a people who are still struggling to avert the loss of their ancient culture and the language upon which much of that culture depends. This is the story of that struggle: the theme is constant: it is a struggle for survival against almost impossible odds.
