Comments: South Wales was inhabited in ancient times by the Silures, who offered considerable resistance to the Romans before being subdued in the late 1st century.
The fall of Roman rule saw the region break up into several Celtic-speaking Christian kingdoms, which fought among themselves quite frequently, so that attempts at uniting all the Welsh --North and South-- never succeeded. Although the South Welsh were able to maintain their independence against the Anglo-Saxons from the 5th century onwards, they were less successful against the Normans, and succumbed, after fierce resistance, to English overlordship in the 12th century.
Since 1301 the heir to the throne has been given the title 'Prince of Wales.' The principality is under the Ecclesiastical authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury . There is a little industry, particularly mining, and some shipping along the south coast, but the economy is primarily agricultural, and rather poor.
