A Journey through the Celtic Christian landscapes of West Gwynedd, with references to its saints, their miracle tales, churches, inscribed stones and holy wells.
Land of Sacred Legends
The legends and Latin stones are explained in the light of the most recent scholarship and a careful study of the surrounding landscape. Readers will appreciate advances in post-Roman archaeology, the basic vocabulary of early Christian memorials; will understand how Welsh country churches were founded, their connection to holy wells, claims to the surrounding land and compromises with Paganism.
