Translated from the Latin, originally entitled Descriptio Cambriae written in 1194. Gerald of Wales, archdeacon of Brecon, was a medieval clergyman and chronicler of his times. Gerald's writings were based on a thorough knowledge of Classical authors and reflect experiences gained on his travels as well as his great knowledge of the standard authorities. He was highly respected as a scholar during and after his time. It is generally agreed today that his most distinguished works are those dealing with Wales and Ireland, with his two books on his beloved Wales being the most important - Itinerarium Cambriae and Descriptio Cambriae, which tell us much about Welsh history and geography and reflect upon the cultural relationship between the Welsh and the English.
