Eccentric – The Life of William Price
Dean Powell

Chartist, surgeon, heretic, Archdruid and pioneer in the legalisation of cremation in the British Isles, ‘Dr’ William Price was undoubtedly one of the most flamboyant, romantic and eccentric characters in Welsh history. Despite a poverty-stricken background with a father who was an insane priest, Price remarkably became a surgeon by the age of just 21; but after that his life took a very different direction.
