The Black Book of Carmarthen

National Library of Wales

The Black Book of Carmarthen takes its name from the colour of its binding and its connection with the Augustinian priory of St John the Evangelist and Teulyddog, Carmarthen. It is now thought to be the work of a single scribe writing at different periods c. 1250. As such it is one of the earliest surviving manuscripts written purely in the Welsh language. In the nineteenth century it was named as one of the Four Ancient Books of Wales.
