Excerpt from The History of the Iron, Steel, Tinplate, And, Other Trades of Wales: With Descriptive Sketches of the Land and the People During the Great Industrial Era Under Review
The more we pry into the great storehouse - the Earth - the more are we astounded at the riches and the marvels she yields. In the shallow ground of a few feet only we find all the reminders of men since the dawn of human history. In our land the long and narrow and the round skulls of the aborigines. And their fiint axes and ornaments of gold. And here and there relics of the Roman. From the ingot of lead he levied as tribute. To the remains of his altars and his tombs. In other lands similarly interesting remains, either of the barbarian or of the conqueror - instruments of war or achievements of art.
