The Mabinogion, translated from Welsh by scholar (and druid) Sioned Davies, is a collection of 11 medieval Welsh tales. Myth, memory, and magic—that’s what shapes these stories of power, pride, and friendship. A woman conjured from flowers, a talking head, the badger in the bag, a mouse who must be hanged, dead warriors reborn in a bubbling cauldron, and even King Arthur who heroically kills the Very Black Witch. Let Davies guide you through this unfamiliar world, and you may be caught in its spell, shaking your head, laughing, and wondering.
