The Thirteen Treasures of the Island of Britain (Welsh: Tri Thlws ar
Ddeg Ynys Prydain) are a series of items in late medieval Welsh
tradition. Lists of the items appear in texts dating to the 15th and
16th centuries. Most of the items are placed in the Hen Ogledd or “Old
North”, the Brittonic-speaking parts of what is now southern Scotland
and Northern England; some early manuscripts refer to the whole list
specifically as treasures “that were in the North”. The number of
treasures is always given as thirteen, but some later versions list
different items, replacing or combining entries to maintain the number.
Later versions also supplement the plain list with explanatory comments
about each treasure.
