Blog | History of the Eisteddfod in Tweets

Louvain Rees is a Welsh historian whose blog currently specialises in Death and Remembrance in South Wales. During the week of the Eisteddfod, held with an open Maes in Cardiff Bay this year, she will be releasing historical snippets on her twitter feed, and Wales Arts Review will be hosting the threads here, bringing together a long list of fascinating insights into the history of one of the largest and oldest festivals in the world.

You can follow Louvain on twitter, and read more about her work here on her blog. But be warned, Louvain says, “History is gritty. History is morbid. History is sexual. If you’re offended by these types of things you really shouldn’t be following me.”
