      I love the Welsh versions of the King Arthur story, the mythology, very
      much enjoy Welsh music (esp. by Plethyn), and the triple Welsh harp.
      It's true that Welsh has a long continuity, and that it's changed little
      over the years, so that a modern Welsh speaker can understand the Welsh
      of the Bible as translated in the 1500's; I think that was their
      earliest translation. That could not be said of English speakers.
