'So they took the blossoms of the oak, and the blossoms of the broom, and the blossoms of the meadow-sweet, and produced from them a maiden, the fairest and most graceful that man ever saw...'

In this superb collection of tales, Celtic mythology and Arthurian romance come together to form a fascinating, deep-seated and powerful interpretation of British history. The tales include the story of the shape-shifter, Gwydion, who created a woman out of flowers; a murdered husband turned into an eagle; Math the magician; a magical board, dragons witches and giants.

These wondrous creatures live in the same world as kings and heroes, quests for honour, and stories of revenge, chivalry, honour and love.

THE MABINOGIAN remains one of the greatest and most influential works of myth and legend ever created.
