CLST3614: Middle Welsh

Middle Welsh was the language spoken and written in Wales in the Middle Ages (from about the 12th to the 14th Century). The most famous text surviving in Middle Welsh is the Mabinogion, a compilation of mythical and legendary material often of much earlier date. In this unit students will develop a knowledge of Middle Welsh grammar and vocabulary and learn to read and interpret texts in Middle Welsh.
