Sir Glanmor Williams is one of Wales's most celebrated historians and the chief authority on early modern Wales. He is also well known as a lecturer, teacher, broadcaster and an active public figure, and in 1995 was awarded a KBE for 'services to the history, culture and heritage of Wales'.
In this autobiography, he writes of his childhood and youth spent amid a warm-hearted, close-knit community which suffered the full force of economic blight. Born in Dowlais in 1920, the only child of working-class parents, he was educated at Cyfarthfa Castle Grammar School and later at University College, Aberystwyth, where his contemporaries included such distinguished writers as Alun Lewis and Emyr Humphreys. He later spent nearly forty years as a university lecturer in Swansea, twenty-five of them as professor of history.
