Rare medieval Welsh manuscript set for auction in London

Welsh manuscript | Medieval ArchivesA very rare mid-14th century legal manuscript written in Medieval Welsh is being auctioned at Sotheby’s in London on Tuesday.

Almost certainly taken to the US by Welsh settlers in the 1700s, The Laws Of Hywel Dda ranks among the earliest medieval documents in that country.
