Gerald's own testimony is used extensively in this book to introduce various themes from medieval life, especially in relation to Wales. The book looks at twelfth-century Wales - its land and society, the Norman invasion of Ireland, the Third Crusade, the troubled reign of Henry II and the Welsh Church. Gerald himself was a vitally important figure in the story of the Welsh Church at this time.
Anglo-Welsh Review

“Both volumes have an attractive format and examine their subject-matter through the presentation of primary evidence, both written and pictorial. This strategy facilitates the skill-based approach to the teaching of History and furnishes the general reader with a variety of interesting information.” –Anglo-Welsh Review
