Cerddi Bangor

Ballad in Welsh and English re. Gelert, Prince Llywelyn's dogAn unique collection of over two thousand eighteenth and nineteenth century Welsh ballads. A number of these ballads originated from the collection of Myrddin Fardd. The “cerdd” in Wales carried out the function of the modern newspaper for a whole century. As such, it is an invaluable tool for researchers looking into the social history of the time.
