When an English cartographer must tell a Welsh village that their mountain is only a hill, the offended community sets out to change that.
The narrator begins by remarking that "For some odd reason, lost in the mists of time, there's an extraordinary shortage of last names in Wales." Actually there is a known reason: as part of their increased domination of Wales in the 16th century, the English abolished the Welsh system of patronymics and introduced surnames arbitrarily.

Dedicated to the memory of Peter Shaw.
