The Latin 'Cronica' was based on the annals kept by the various churches and monasteries in Wales. The 'Brut' is one of the most important sources about the history of Wales prior to its conquest by Edward I. It begins in 682 with the death of Cadwaladr Fendigaid and ends with the death of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd in 1282. The original version was semingly compiled in he Cistercian abbey of Strata Florida.
