Stories In Welsh Stone explores the stories behind 15 headstones that sit quietly over nineteenth century graves. Silent they may be but these stones tell unusual and dramatic stories which we have a responsibility to preserve and remember. They deal with murder, sudden death, execution, human tragedy. They deal with passion, hatred, rivalry wrongful arrest, unsolved crimes, the vulnerability of young women. The book is about the things people do to other people.
The book has plenty of photographs and illustrations that try to bring these stories to life.. There are also directions and maps to show you how to find these unusual and neglected parts of our heritage in Wales.
