Wales was once a fragmented land of ancient kingdoms. Its rulers were independent princes, bonded by common language and laws.
The castles of Wales are famous the world over. Experts reckon there are over 600 of them. We might argue over the absolute number, but there’s little dispute that – in terms of pure might and ground-breaking military architecture – the castles of Edward I reign supreme.
Daring swordfights and thrilling battles. Tragic romances and secret experiments. Powerful princes and courageous princesses.
Mullock Bridge, a simple stone arch on the road between Pembroke and Dale in south-west Wales, plays a legendary role in a compelling story that sees a Welshman being crowned king of England; and – for bonus points – founder of the all-powerful Tudor dynasty.
