National Library of Wales buys Medieval Welsh manuscript
One of the first medieval manuscripts to be written in Welsh has been saved for the nation after being sold at auction for £541,250.
It is believed the 14th Century pocket book, called The Laws of Hywel Dda, was taken to America by Welsh settlers in the 1700s.
The buyer was the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
The book was expected to fetch up to £700,000 at Sotheby's.
