Wales's dramatic, mist-shrouded mountains have always been a powerful stimulus to the storyteller. The
cliffs and bays along the Welsh coast also tell tales - of great storms and holy wells with magical healing powers
Harvest Trust is a charity which organises holidays for children in need from all over England and Wales.
These holidays are specially for 8 to 12 year olds who need a week away, but never get the chance. The holidays are based at our own holiday centre near Cardigan Bay in West Wales, and are arranged in
partnership with primary schools, youth and community groups.
There's a legion of sites throughout Wales with links to the legendary King Arthur and his Knights of the
Round Table. From north to south, standing stones, caves, hilltop forts and lakes claim their Arthurian adventures.
Legend has it that King Arthur was born locally. Ogmore Castle is the point where it is believed Arthur was
fatally wounded, and the cave where his body was reputed to be hidden is at Coed yr Mwstwr woods. His final resting-place is said to be a little church high on the hills above Pencoed.
Merljin de Tovenaar
Merlin the Magician plays a spellbinding role in Arthurian legend. True to his name, he crops up magically all over Wales, from the craggy peaks of Snowdonia to Carmarthenshire in the south.
Mythes & Legendes
The Welsh are great storytellers. You'll hear tales of King Arthur and Merlin the Magician, of kingdoms lost
beneath the sea and battles between dragons, of haunted castles and knightly deeds. These captivating tales
don't just spring from a fertile Celtic imagination. They are also inspired by Wales's wonderful landscapes and
seascapes. Which may explain why Pembrokeshire is still proud to be known as Gwlad hud a lledrith, 'The land of magic and enchantment'.

Geschiedenis van Wales
The Romans mined for gold here, the Tudor dynasty was founded here, and the Normans built castles here.
Each of the major periods of history has left its mark on Wales, some more attractive than others. The scars
of the industrial revolution are now being healed by a forward-looking people with their own National
Assembly. But the sense of past can still be felt all around Wales: from a windy hilltop with a half-ruined castle, to the quiet darkness of a mine miles underground.

The National Eisteddfod of Wales can be traced back to 1176 when it is said that the first Eisteddfod was held
, under the auspices of Lord Rhys, at his castle in Cardigan. There he held a grand gathering to which were
invited poets and musicians from all over the country. A chair at the Lord's table was awarded to the best poet and musician, a tradition that prevails in the modern day National Eisteddfod.
Welsh - taal uit Wales
Het Welsh wordt gesproken in Wales en is evenals het Gaelic en het Bretons een Keltische taal. De Kelten
werden door invasies van andere volken teruggedreven tot het uiterste westen (Wales, Ierland) en Bretagne in Frankrijk, en behielden altijd hun eigen cultuur en taal.
