Praise For Glanmor Williams: A Life

“ . . . an immensely readable and fascinating volume of autobiography. Glanmor Williams writes with unfailing humanity, generosity and humour. His personal experiences are described against the backdrop of local and national events. The text is characterised by the lucidity and clarity of style of which the author is an undisputed master, and touches on many aspects of our national life during the last century. The volume is notably well produced, a real credit to its printers, Gwasg Dinefwr, and contains a host of charming and highly evocative photographs. It is a real pleasure to peruse its pages.” –


“Like all his written compositions, Glanmor’s memoir is a delight to read: concise, lucid and candid, it twinkles with puckish humour and vivacity.” –Welsh History Review

— Welsh History Review

“This autobiography gives a fascinating insight into the motivation of an individual, the interplay of personalities, the politics of institutions – and the accidents of fate – during the course of a truly remarkable career . . . This is a book which will fascinate and inspire.” –Archaeologia Cambrensis
