Geography
  • Wales is located on a peninsula in central-west
    Great Britain. Its area is about 20,779 km2.
    Wales is bordered by England to the east and by
    sea in the other three directions.

5
  • Wales has three National Parks Snowdonia, Brecon
    Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast.
  • The highest mountains in Wales are in Snowdonia,
    and Snowdon (1,085 m ) is the highest peak in
    Wales.

6
INDUSTRY
  • Parts of Wales have been heavily industrialised
    since the 18th century and the early Industrial
    Revolution. Coal, cooper, iron, silver, lead and
    gold have been extensively mined in Wales, and
    slate has been quarried.

7
INDUSTRY
  • By the second half of the 19th century, mining
    and metallurgy had come to dominate the Welsh
    economy, transforming the landscape and society
    in the industrial districts of south and
    north-east Wales.

8
Demographics
  • The population of Wales in the United Kingdom
    Census 2001 was 2,903,085, which has risen to
    2,958,876 according to 2005 estimates. The main
    population and industrial areas are in South
    Wales, consisting of the city of Cardiff.

9
Art
  • Many works of Celtic art have been found in
    Wales.
  • The Welsh painter Richard Wilson (17141782) is
    arguably the first major British landscapist, but
    rather more notable for Italian scenes than Welsh
    ones, although he did paint several on visits
    from London.

The Bard, 1774, by Thomas Jones
10
Sport
  • The most popular sports in Wales are rugby union
    and football. Wales, like other constituent
    nations, enjoys independent representation in
    major world sporting events such as the FIFA
    World Cup, Rugby World Cup and in the
    Commonwealth Games (however as Great Britain in
    the Olympics).
