The Taliesin Tradition

a 7 part online course with Dr Gwilym Morus-Baird

The Taliesin mythology is one of Britain’s oldest surviving traditions. With its roots in the Celtic Iron Age it continues to flourish to this day as a central part of Welsh language culture, modern Druidry and Paganism. The main sources for this tradition include some of the oldest and most intriguing poems of the Welsh bardic tradition, as well as some of the better known folk stories of Wales. By examining these sources in detail, this course explores what is essentially the oldest surviving myth concerning a native British priesthood.

Here’s what some of last year’s students said about the courses on this website:
