This chapter explores the way that Nest was remembered in the early modern period, a process that has much to tell us about the way that Welsh writers conceptualized the past. It will consider how the critical early years of Norman incursions into Wales were portrayed by later writers. This will be achieved through a discussion of the writings of Welsh gentlemen with antiquarian interests, George Owen of Henllys, Rice Merrick, Edward Stradling, Humphrey Llwyd, David Powel and Sir John Price. These authorities turned their attention to the Welsh past as part of a project to promote their own positions and generate propaganda for nascent Welsh Protestant patriotism.
