Media and Lecture Recordings

The 2020 - 2021 lecture series was organised by the Centre for Arthurian Studies, and each seminar attracted audiences of up to or in excess of a hundred

This series of research talks covered topics pertaining to Arthurian and Celtic traditions, with a focus on the relevance of legends and their retellings both in and outside their original Welsh contexts. The crossing of borders (geographically, linguistically, and in time periods) is key to our understanding of the impact of Arthurian stories.
