History of the Britons

NENNIUS ( - 9th Cent.), translated by J. A. GILES (1808 - 1884)

One of the earliest recorded histories of Britain; Nennius wrote the book around 796BC. These days Nennius is recognised as being a teller, and embellisher, of historic characters and events; but his book is notable as one of the earliest that mention Arthur (of Arthurian legend).
