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.
