The Oral Tradition

Over a thousand years since these legends were first recited, as a modern audience we’re indebted to the oral tradition of storytelling in Wales. Through the narrative of the cyfarwydd (storyteller), as well as the ‘ordinary folk’, much of our culture has been preserved in the form of traditional prose, local myths, supernatural tales, humorous stories and poetry.
