This chapter begins the third part of the book, devoted mainly to relations between the Welsh (and other Britons) and the English. It tackles some major sources of which scholars have taken very different views. Included are, first, sources for the history of events: the Annales Cambriae, the Chronicle of Ireland, and the Northern History in the Historia Brittonum; then the early British royal genealogies; and finally early British poetry (the Gododdin and the poems ascribed to Taliesin). It is argued that the Annales Cambriae and the British entries in the Chronicle of Ireland did not derive from a single North‐British source and that the Northern History may well be independent of the Annales Cambriae. The B version of the Gododdin is seen as a very early text.

Keywords:   Annales Cambriae, Historia Brittonum, the Chronicle of Ireland, royal genealogies, Y Gododdin, Taliesin
