  3. 3. The Gododdin Poems <ul><li>This poem is a section from the Four Ancient Books of Wales, by William F. Skene(1868) </li></ul><ul><li>The Gododdin were a Brythonic people of north-eastern Britain in sub-Roman period, best known as the subject of the 7th century Welsh series of poems known as Y Gododdin. </li></ul><ul><li>The name Gododdin is the Modern Welsh form; it is derived from the Brthonic language word Votadini, confirmed in Latin texts. </li></ul>
  4. 4. British Goblins <ul><li>The main character Wirt Sikes’s 1881 book defines and records Welsh fairy legends as they existed; still important, not just as keen mythology but living folklore in that year. Like many texts of the time, it treats the subject routinely, detailing fairy with such care and precision as to leach away a measure of the magic. There is still a lot of magic in the story and now magic is not found elsewhere. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Welsh Fairy Book <ul><li>This is a colection of eighty-three fairy tales from the great country of Wales, including the Lady of the Lake, The Fairy Harp, Pennard Castle, and the Stray Cow. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Barddas of Iolo Morganweg <ul><li>The Barddas of Iolo Moranweg is a collection of writings about ancient Welsh Bardic and Druidic beliefs. Iolo Morganweg(1747-1826), was a poet and scholar, he was a key figure in the Druid revival of the ninetenth century. The Barddas is a great story and if Druids are your cup of tea then you will enjoy it as long as you know the background of its creation. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Follow up <ul><li>These are all fascinating stories, they all bring up the existence of fairy and the mythical portion of Welsh history. These stories and collections are part of the background of our modern day mythological stories. </li></ul>
