This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in this book. The book reviews the medical history of Wales, by highlighting the many ways in which Welsh people both engaged with, and participated in, wider networks of medical knowledge and practice. It demonstrates how far Welsh medical history can be used as a prism through which to view early modern society in Wales more generally and, in turn, its relationship with England and beyond. The book addresses broader questions in medical history and not be limited by the geographical borders of Wales. It shows how the Welsh people, even in upland, rural areas had access to a range of medical goods and services. The book examines the increasing import of the printed word in Wales, and the complex relationship between oral and literate, English and Welsh cultures.
