Around 829 CE1 the Monk Nennius2 (or someone!3) to have compiled a series of historical documents into the Historia Brittonum - the "History of Britain"4. Appended to the end of some copies of this History that we have today are a series of "Wonders"5, in the vein of the "Seven Wonders of the World"6. Only Nennius' Wonders are different: they aren't constructed by people: they are, instead, a mix of the geographical7 and mythological, rooted in the very foundations of Britain8.

This website will help you learn more about Nennius' Wonders: their art and science, and the way in which they act as pins, fastening Britain today to a hidden landscape of dark age mythology.
