Text: Annales Cambriae

The Welsh chronicles known as Annales Cambriaę, written in Latin, survive in manuscripts from the thirteenth century and are written in parallel columns. Kathleen Hughes has suggested that they were begun in the late 8th century and that not long afterwards materials from Irish annals and other sources were added.
