Literary Acknowledgements

I have over many years used many books and references in a bid to check facts and events so that I could use them as a starting point for for my own research and the books that I have listed below remain above all others my favourites.

No specific point has been taken from any one book, those that have been taken however, have been amalgamated with my own research. For history and its happenings, while it can be researched, remains a personal point of view when not all events have not been recorded for posterity.

In naming these specific authors, whether they may be deceased or not, I extend my sincere thanks to them for their works; for their literary endeavours have encouraged my love of history: especially my country's medieval period: as did my History Master - Mr. Harry Bicknall of Builth Wells Grammar School all those years ago.

I give no preference to any author, for all in my opinion are equal and the way the books are listed just happens to be the way that they sit on my library shelf.
