This view was influential on historians writing in the early twentieth century, whose work defined the Welsh primarily in terms of their relationship with the land. 2 Despite criticising ‘geographic determinism’, Bowen nevertheless distinguished between a mountainous heartland of ‘inner Wales’ and outer border or lowland areas considered more open to external influences. From this perspective, Welsh history appeared as a gradual retreat of the older culture, a process culminating in the inexorable spread of industrialisation with the old culture corrupted or destroyed apart from remnants in mountainous redoubts.
