> Twrch Trwyth is a legendary character found in the old Welsh tale of
> Culhwch ac Olwen. He is a king turned into a boar (like the Irish Suibhne,
> who was cursed to live in trees like a bird) for being a bit of a bold boy
> (can't remember what he did). He is hunted by Culhwch who has to get some
> stuff off him - a comb & something else??
> This story is available in several translations in several currently
> available books - I won't offer to get titles & isbns for you as I'm
> rubbish at remembering to do this - any one else got a book title?
A translation of Culhwch ac Olwen can be found in
