Sample text

The final allusions to Arthurian legend can be found at the conclusion of Nennius’s Historia in that section known as the Mirabilia (Marvels). Here the historian recounts two local Welsh legends that reveal that the mythology surrounding Arthur was already beginning to take shape in the ninth century. One of the Marvels lies in the Buelt region of Wales; here a mound of stones bears a dog’s print that is said to belong to Arthur’s hound Cabal, who left this mark while hunting the boar, Troit.
