  4. 4. WALES Origins and history: Welsh national identity emerged among the Celtic Britons after the Roman withdrawal from Britain in the 5th century, and Wales is regarded as one of the modern Celtic nations. Llywelyn ap Gruffydd's death in 1282 marked the completion of Edward I of England's conquest of Wales, though Owain Glyndŵr briefly restored independence to what was to become modern Wales, in the early 15th century. The whole of Wales was annexed by England and incorporated within the English legal system, under the Laws in Wales Acts 1535–1542. Distinctive Welsh politics developed in the 19th century. Welsh Liberalism, exemplified in the early 20th century by Lloyd George, was displaced by the growth of socialism and the Labour Party. Welsh national feeling grew over the century; Plaid Cymru was formed in 1925 and the Welsh Language Society in 1962. Established under the Government of Wales Act 1998, the National Assembly for Wales holds responsibility for a range of devolved policy matters.
  5. 5. WALES Main cities:Cardiff.
  6. 6. WALES Traditions: Druids occur in many mystical tales. In one, a Druid, Figol, threatened to bring fire to rage on his enemies and prevent the men and their steeds from going to the toilet! Their bodies would fill with urine! Of course, from our knowledge of the world today we know that this is impossible, but so many accounts of druids are riddled with mysticism, magic and possible exaggeration.
  7. 7. WALES Traditional food: The people of Wales have fiercely guarded and retained many of their ancient traditions, customs and language, and this is also true of the cuisine of Wales. A decade ago it was admittedly difficult to find traditional Welsh cooking in the cities of Wales such Cardiff or Swansea or even in the seaside resorts such as Llandudno or Colwyn Bay. Nowadays thanks to an initiative called 'Wales, the True Taste', traditional Welsh produce and dishes are being celebrated throughout the land, in hotels, restaurants and country inns.
  8. 8. WALES Sport: The most important sport of rugby.
  9. 9. WALES Interesting places to visit: Wales is a nice country in UK. This country has listed seven wonders of Wales that you may visit when you come here. Those may include the Wrexham (Wrecsam) Steeple, Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, the Gresford Bells, Snowdon, the Overton Yew trees, and Llangollen Bridge in Flintshire.
