Cuhelyn the Bard Lecture (audio and pdf)

This audio clip is from a course on The Welsh Bardic Tradition, held at Aberystwyth University, alongside an excerpt from the course notes. It covers a medieval praise poem written around 1100 to Cuhelyn Fardd, a powerful nobleman and bard from South Western Wales. The poem itself reveals much about early bardic culture and custom in medieval Wales.
