Book Of The Month

Swansea The Time Of Our Lives





Richard Bowen is made from DNA. From the dawn of time it came, moving silently down through the centuries, living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of its gathering at the end of a ballpoint pen to write this book. My mothers are descended from women who recolonised this island after the end of the last Ice Age – the so called Pioneers who moved into the vast empty landscape around 10,000BC. My fathers are in possession of the quintessential Celtic marker gene R1b-S145 and are descendants of the Beaker Folk who arrived more recently on this island, around 2,500BC. They farmed, worked metal, mined, drank beer, had tattoos and appear to have attacked and largely destroyed communities of earlier farmers. They also brought with them a language that was to become modern Welsh.


Richard Bowen was raised at Plas Farm, works as an exploration geophysicist and sometimes gives creative writing some welly. Amazing facts and amusing anecdotes are weaved together in this off-beat travel book that will delight visitors to the

Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot area as well those seeking to enrich their knowledge of the history and heritage of this little corner of the world.
