WALES (1539 – 1750)
The post-medieval period was one of radical change in Wales.
The suppression of the monasteries completed in 1539 produced
wholesale reorganisation of the economy, the foundation
or expansion of great secular estates and the beginnings
of diverse building traditions. The Act of Union with England
in 1536 prompted the growth of county towns.
