Geographical Orientation

From around the world, more than 35 countries have joined the reading of these posts. It has occurred to me, that many in these various countries may not know geographically, where Wales is actually located. The map to the right is intended to show the geographic location of Wales in relationship to Ireland, Scotland, and England. It is a land area just over 8,000 square miles, hooked to the west side of the main island called England. Hopefully, this will help give a view of this little part of the world with a long history.

The figure is taken from: The Jones Genealogist, Vol.III, No.5, Jan/Feb, 1992. You can enlarge the figure by left clicking on the image. Hope this is helpful.
