Abstract


An ascertainment of the existence of twelve Pictish silver chains, rather than the ten cited by most authorities. Also cautions against reliance on references to such objects in the text of Brut Aberpergwm, which was probably written by Iolo Morgannwg (1747--1826) even though he claimed it was a chronicle originally written in the twelfth-century.
