Mr Owens related a succinct story of the country of Wales in a short time frame with key concepts to further pique interest for later exploration. His introductory outline was helpful to know where we'd be taken. The review of some UK politics was informative to US listeners, the description of how parts of the country differ (north, south, etc.), and the uniqueness of the Welsh language. I found the history of its settlement, origins, rulers, and English subjugation interesting. The speaker also explained who the key players were, ancient and modern, and their influence on Welsh history. As a result of his lecture, I know now how the country is working to preserve the culture and language. As one who has visited Wales 3 times, I learned more information to add to my current level and recall, fondly, the friendliness and kindness of the people. Hope I can return someday!
John was very knowledgable and clear. The presentation was interesting and well done. My only quibble was that I wanted to see more photos of Wales.
Very interesting and informative, makes me want to learn more about Wales and spend time there.
John was extremely well-versed on Welsh history and presented it in a very well organized format. However, I feel that the description of this seminar was not exactly correct as it was more of a Welsh history seminar as opposed to a description of the country for travelers.
