THE CAMBRIAN VISITOR. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13. HISTORY OF Wx\LES. Continued from page 47. CHAP. I.=SECTION II. Influence of Climate on Inhabitants—Alteration in the Climate of Britain.—Persons of the Ancient Britons.—Practice of painting their bodies.—A short Reflection. .x\_MONG the local peculiarities of a country, which influence the temperament, disposition and manners of its inhabitants, none have been found more generally operative than the climate. This is a subject which has a particular claim on our attention, as we proceed to delineate the habits of the Ancient Britons, because the earliest writers who describe the climate of this island, give us an account of it almost as widely varying from its present character, as those habits differed front our own.
