The Secret of the Bards of the Isle of Britain

by Dillwyn Miles

An authoritative book on The Gorsedd of Bards of the Isle of Britain which has been in existence for over 200 years, written by a man who had been part of its colorful history for 60 years. These were the years when the Order came into its own and was firmly established as part of the ceremonial of the National Eisteddfod of Wales. The book brings to a non-Welsh-speaking audience, a detailed history of the origins of the Gorsedd as part of the Celtic romantic movement of the end of the eighteenth century. It traces its chequered history over the first century and a half of its existence and through its modern settled period up to 1992. 

Published by Dinefwr Press in 1992.
