More on The Sleeping Warriors of Craig y Ddinas

More on The Sleeping Warriors of Craig y Ddinas...: A tale is told of a Welshman and a wise man who found an entrance to a great cavern. On reaching the depths of the cave, the wise man advised the other not to touch a bell which hung in the passage.

The two travellers found an army of thousands of warriors sleeping yet prepared for battle with armour, shields and swords. One amongst them was singled out by his battle-axe and crown of gold. In the midst of this circle of sleeping warriors were two great heaps of gold and silver. The wise man told the Welshman that he could take as much as he could carry but that he must take care to avoid touching the bell as the warriors would wake.

Leaving the cave with his arms full of treasure, the Welshman knocked against the bell, waking one of the warriors who asked, ‘Is it day?’ The Welshman replied, ‘No, sleep on.’ just as he had been advised to do by the wise man. The warrior fell back to his slumber and the travellers left.
