project: The Pinnacle of the Medieval Welsh Bardic Tradition? The Poetry of Guto'r Glyn.

From the fifteenth century to the present day, Guto'r Glyn (c.1435/c.1493) has been acknowledged as the greatest exponent of the Welsh praise-poetry tradition, a cultural succession which stretches back to the sixth century.
