Episode Summary

Battle for Wales
Under the rule of English kings, the Welsh had strict rules governing every aspect of their lives, from where they could live to where they could work. This authority was challenged in 1400 when an English lord seized land from a Welsh nobleman, Owain Glyndwr, outraging Glyndwr and inspiring him to lead a rebellion of independence against English rule that lasted more than 10 years. Hosts Peter and Dan Snow try their hands at the longbow and experience firsthand how Glyndwr used the rough terrain of the Welsh borders to outwit his enemies, King Henry IV and his son, Prince Hal.moreless
