This volume, the final of three, focuses on the inscribed stones and stone sculptures of North Wales crafted between 400 and 1150 AD. It provides fresh insights and new interpretations of over 150 monuments, many of which have been discovered since V. E. Nash-Williams's Early Christian Monuments of Wales was published in 1950. It includes an introductory discussion of the historical and archaeological context of the monuments, as well as essays on earlier research, geology, form and function, ornament and iconography, the language and lettering of the inscriptions, cultural connections, dating, and chronology. Numerous illustrations of the monuments accompany the critical analyses.
Fun, cultural and informative, this series of readers offers an extensive range of fiction and non-fiction titles that reinforce the basic structures and vocabulary found in most primary courses. The Macmillan Children's Readers series can be used as supplementary reading material with any primary course. A picture dictionary (or wordlist) and activity pages are at the back of each book and an accompanying Audio gives children a chance to listen to the stories while they read them.
