The Welsh Academy Encyclopedia of Wales

The Welsh Academy Encyclopedia of Wales, just published, makes no reference to Craig-y-nos Castle being used for nearly forty years as a children's TB sanatorium.

It is truly amazing how even such a distinguished academic book as this- published by the University of Wales, price £65- manages to draw a veil over this period of Welsh history.

Yet hundreds, if not thousands of children passed through this building, and many died within it.

Surely it warrants at least a foot-note in the history of Wales?
