Twitter for iPhone : Medieval Welsh divorce: 'Should her husband be leprous, or have fetid breath, or be incapable of marital duties; if on account of one of these three things she leave her husband, she is to have the whole of her property' Ancient Laws and Institutes of Wales p.85

Twitter Web App : Gwrach-y-Rhibyn has bat's wings & talons. At night she goes to the window of one about to die to call their name. She may be a descendant of a water divinity, and haunted the Caerphilly swamp, until rising, wailing, from the water would fly to the nearby castle...

Twitter Web App : A series of poems and meditations by Lorna Smithers on Tri Thlws ar Ddeg Ynys Brydain, The Thirteen treasures of the Island of Britain, beginning with the Sword of Rhydderch Hael. Well worth reading, (but I wish she hadn't recast them as the Thirteen Treasures of the North.)

Twitter Web App : When St Deiniol had no animals to plough his land, two great stags came out of Pencoed wood, submitted their necks to the yoke, drew the plough all day, and then returned to the wood.

Twitter for iPhone : Another silly Mabinogion video for you all. Please tell me there are other people enjoying these? 😅

Twitter Web App : Maesteg artist Christopher Williams painted Deffroad Cymru, the Awakening of Wales, in 1911. ‘Gwenllian rises from the fiery breath of a dragon. She had been under a spell and had slept for centuries.' It wasn't displayed within Williams' lifetime.
