Brythonic Deities

A selection of articles on the Brythonic gods and goddesses who were worshipped in ancient Britain and appear in medieval Welsh mythology. My main focus is on Gwyn ap Nudd and his ‘family’ – his sister and beloved, Creiddylad, his father, Nodens/Nudd, his mother, Anrhuna, his grandfather and grandmother, Beli and Don, and their children.
