Summary Wales is especially rich in the folklore of place, and this collection brings a new perspective to the history of Denbighshire, the oldest inhabited area of Wales. With hills, valleys, moorland, and coast, this varied land has inspired many tales of ancient battles, strange creatures, and curious customs. This compilation of stories from the ancient lore of the modern county of Denbighshire includes local legends, folk tales, stories of magic and mystery, and tales of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Discover dragons and devils, ghosts and giants, witches and cunning men, poets, heroes, saints, kings and queens, and, of course, Y Tylwyth Teg, The Fair Folk. Fluent in Welsh, the author has collected some unusual material which will be of particular interest to non-Welsh speakers who will not have come across these tales before. With illustrations from local artist Ed Fisher complementing the tales, this volume will be enjoyed by old and young alike. Mae’na groeso cynnes Cymreig yma i bawb. There is a warm Welsh welcome here to all.
