Aberystwyth centre to edit Welsh saints' medieval manuscripts

New research is beginning into the lives of medieval saints in Wales.

The University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies in Aberystwyth has been awarded a research grant of £750,000 to edit medieval manuscripts, and produce an online digital resource for the public.

Some of these texts have never been edited and many are available only to Welsh speakers.

Prof Dafydd Johnston, the director of the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts and Oliver Hides on Good Morning Wales.
