The Giants of Wales: Cewri Cymru (Welsh Studies) Details

A collection and discussion of the literary, place-name and archaeological materials concerning giants in Wales and the Marches, the text includes three basic registers: tales and materials about place-names containing Welsh "cawr" or "cewri", or English "giant"; tales and materials for place-names with associated giant traditions; and tales and materials associated with personal names of giants. The preface includes a discussion of the linguistic, inscriptional and literary materials of Gaulish "cavar" and a description of the Welsh materials. There is also a new text and translation of Sion Dafydd Rhys's 34-folio chapter on giants from his 16th-century prose defence of Geoffrey of Monmouth's "Historia". National Grid and Cantref/Shire cross-indexes to all primary and secondary place-names in the study have been provided, and a Stith Thompson motif-index for Welsh giants is also included.
