A brief history of Wales
While Wales is believed to have been inhabited since 250,000 BC, it only became a recognised country in 1540 with Henry VIII's Act of Union, Within the previous couple of millennia, Wales has been home to European Celtic tribes, Roman and Saxon invaders and other people from everywhere around the world who have settled here.
Wales has its own language and identity, both of which are held in high esteem by Welsh people. it's a devolved parliament (the Welsh Parliament) and a government (the Welsh Government) that creates laws, agrees taxes and represents Welsh people, though the united kingdom Parliament and Government hold significant power and influence. Read more about the history of Wales.
Wales is usually called the castle capital of the planet . With over 600 sites remaining, we've more castles per area unit than than most other countries in Europe. Most can still be visited and a few you can even stay the night in, Like Heritage England, Wales has its own body who manage them called Cadw (the Welsh historic environment service), the National Trust, or by private owners.
Just for some extra info Welsh inventions include the ball bearings, the microphone, deep-space photography and the hydrogen cell, Also something which won't mean a lot to many people but the Welsh invented “packet switching” which is essentially how all post GSM technology works which basically means all your internet on your computer or mobile phones.

Interesting facts about Wales
The longest zip wire in Europe - That would be in Wales and the next time you’re in Bethesda, North Wales, take a trip to Zip World Slate Caverns which as the longest and fastest zip line in Europe.
A village with the second long name in the world! Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch means “The Church of St Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near The rapid whirlpool and The Church of St Tysilio near A red cave”.
It's actually listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the longest place name in Europe. In case you were wondering, it gets shortened often to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll or just Llanfair PG.
Welsh is spoken far and wide - 750,000 people, in and beyond the country speed the Welsh language in countries such as England, Canada, The United States and Argentina.
An Englishman's (Actually a Welshmans) home is his castle - There are more castles in Wales than any other country in the world per square mile (about 610 to be exact). Caerphilly Castle is the biggest castle in Wales and is actually the second largest castle in Europe, coming behind of only Windsor Castle (Castles still controlled by a monarch).
The first suspension bridge in the World!! - The Menai Suspension Bridge was the first bridge in the world to be constructed to withstand heavy traffic and is set among the north wales landscape. Designed by Thomas Telford, the bridge opened on January 30th 1826 and measured 386 meters (1,265 feet) long. It had towers 46 meters (150 feet) high with thick chains. The towers were 10 meters (33 feet) apart, linked with a deck measuring 60 feet across and 12 feet high above the supporting towers.
We could continue with amazing facts such as the Equals (=) sign was invented by welsh mathematician Robert Recorde or that the smallest cathedral city in the world is St David's in Pembrokeshire, and of course the welsh landscape is great for photography as can be seen in our North Wales Canvas Prints and Wall Art
