From the dawn of civilisation, this south-western peninsula of Wales has provided a landing stage for migrating people sailing up the western shores of Europe. Through the Neolithic, Bronze and Celtic ages, they brought with them new materials, new crafts, new ideas and a desire to market and exchange.
The author (1929-2009) was a rural life and maritime academic who spent his career promoting this Welsh heritage in a lively and careful way at the National Folk Museum St Fagan's and the Welsh Industrial and Maritime Museum in Cardiff's docklands. A prolific author who researched his fields of interest with meticulous care, he was also a popular lecturer and very good company.
