Ben Guy

University of Cambridge

Ben Guy is a graduate student in the University of Cambridge, Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic. In 2012 he graduated from Cambridge with a BA in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic. In 2012–13 he was the Craig Scholar in Brown University, from where he graduated with an MA in History. He is currently working on a PhD thesis entitled ‘Medieval Welsh Genealogy: Texts, Contexts and Transmission’, in which he hopes to suggest when, where and why genealogical texts were composed in Wales between the ninth and thirteenth centuries, and how those texts were transmitted in manuscript form through the medieval and early modern periods and into the eighteenth century.

Other research interests include medieval chronicles, Welsh manuscripts, Welsh orthography and the transition from Roman to post-Roman Britain. Ben has published work on these topics in journals such as Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie and the National Library of Wales Journal. He is a regular attendee at conferences such as the International Medieval Congress at Leeds and Harvard Celtic Colloquium. He is a founding member of the Seminar Croniclau Cymreig, and is also the editor of Plant Brychan for the ‘Cult of Saints in Wales’ project of the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies.
