'In every sense this is a massive achievement ... It should be on the shelves of anyone with an interest in medieval history or the history of Wales. For those who combine those interests, and study the medieval history of Wales it is a book which should never be out of reach, and for which they will owe its editor a great debt of gratitude.'
