Historical outline of Wales
Wales was invaded by the Celts in BC 1000; they spread over the country and developed farming and cattle breeding. The Romans arrived in AD 61 AD but they never managed to romanize Wales. Then, the Anglo-Saxons arrived and for long struggled with the Welsh for the country.
