ECCENTRIC – THE LIFE OF DR WILLIAM PRICE
Chartist, surgeon, heretic, archdruid and pioneer of cremation in the British Isles, Dr Price was one of the most flamboyant and eccentric characters in Welsh history.
Born to an insane father and poverty stricken in his youth, he incredibly became a fully qualified surgeon at 21. With an obsessions for Welsh culture and patriotism, he masterminded Wales’ first national museum and fought for his political beliefs in the chartist cause.
Passionate about improving the lives of the working classes he launched Wales’ first cooperative and created an embryonic health service while forever fighting in the law courts and having children out of wedlock!
This is a delightful insight in to the life of Dr William Price, his thoughts, aspirations, hopes, dreams and above all his determination to leave an indelible mark on the history of Wales.
