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.

The evolution of Rebeccaism illustrates that specific modes of protest did not originate with or remain the property of specific movements or demographics, but were utilised, adapted and channelled as the occasion demanded.
