“To be born in Wales, not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but, with music in your blood and with poetry in your soul, is a privilege indeed.” (Brian Harris)

Wales is a fascinating and ancient land filled with history. Prehistoric ruins, medieval castles, and old coaching inns are only some of the historic sites people visit. The Welsh have their distinct language and customs and have always felt themselves to be a people apart from the neighboring English. This division goes back to the fifth century, when the ancient Britons fled west in the face of the Anglo-Saxon incursion. 

The Anglo-Saxons were made up of three tribes - the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes - from what is now Denmark and Northern Germany. These tribes took advantage of the Roman legion's departure to attack vulnerable Britons, taking over England until the Britons in Wales defied them. This defiance continued into the Middle Ages, and numerous wars occurred as successive English kings tried and eventually succeeded in asserting their will over the rebellious country.

With such a storied and violent past, it is no surprise Wales has many tales of ghosts. The Ghosts of Wales: A Collection of Ghost Stories Across the Welsh Nation is a collection of such tales, just a few among the thousands of local legends and modern sightings that make people think Wales is one of the most haunted countries in the world. 

It is part of a collection of other titles authored by Sean McLachlan, including The Ghosts of England: A Collection of Ghost Stories Across the English Nation and The Ghosts of Ireland: A Collection of Ghost Stories Across the Emerald Isle

You will learn about the ghosts of Wales like never before.
