Class Legend 

The Four Branches of the Mabinogi are the oldest and most famous legends in Wales. First written down around eight hundred years ago, they were being told for many years before that. This is the legend of Branwen, the main character in the second branch of the Mabinogi, Branwen Ferch llyr.
