also edited because the author was English.For instance I am trying to find
what clothes they would have worn etc and besides a few bits and pieces I 
haven't found much. 

One of your best sources for Welsh info in the SCA is this lady:
Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn. She puts out a very good series of

The info on obtaining her pamphlets as well as a number other Welsh sources 
can be found in this file in the CULTURES section of Stefan's Florilegium 
(previously called the SCA Rialto Files):

Wales-msg         (54K)  3/31/97    Welsh culture. avail. newsletters.

There is also mention of several books useful in learning Welsh as well as a
Middle Welsh grammer book. There are books written in period about Walse that
some have found useful such as: 'A Journey Through Wales' and 'A Description 
of Wales' by Gerald of Wales. I could list a number of other books, but I
doubt this list wants me to do this.

I will also be updating this file soon with several more referances.
