Weaving the tales of the Mabinogion  

The early Welsh collection of tales from which the Mabinogion takes its name, intertwines legend, folklore, tradition and history. Passed down by word of mouth by the early Welsh bards, it has given rise to a timeless literary heritage and continues to inspire artists.

My research of animals and their representation in Welsh culture has led me back to the tales of the Mabinogion.  Possibly the earliest  tales of love, betrayal and conquest with the native animals playing a cameo role – often sitting on the boundaries of reality and other worlds.

These tales are linked to historical events and places that still exist today in and around Wales.
