The story of an ambitious Norman-Welsh priest who wrote, often angrily and always vividly, about his troubles and about the people and places he knew. His books provide the most detailed evidence and the shrewdest insights we have into twelfth century Wales, its social customs, its agriculture, its leading figures and its religious life.
