the physicians of myddfai - legend and legacy

I want to share this lovely little video with you as it follows on so well from my last blog. It was made by the young people of Myddfai as part of an oral history project. Here one of the older inhabitants recalls the history of the Physicians of Myddfai and their knowledge of plants, keeping their story alive for another generation.


  1. I love the ancient wisdom. Thanks for sharing that video. Every village has its own methods and its own local sources. I just love that about the "wise ones."

  2. Very nice! It's always fascinating to hear of the wisdom of past generations. Thank goodness someone keeps these tales alive so that they aren't lost.
