A great book that covers the general background, with specific information about the wool trade. Prof Chris Evans is our lead advisor.
Charlotte Williams, Sugar and Slate (Planet 2002) ISBN 0-9540881-0-7
An interesting personal story from Welsh born Charlotte Williams – another advisor taking an active interest in our project
J. Geraint Jenkins, The Welsh Wool Industry (National Museum of Wales1969) It doesn’t appear to have an ISBN
The most detailed and comprehensive book researched and written about the history of the Welsh woollen Industry. Sadly Geraint Jenkins died a couple of years ago.
