Absolutely, it depends on what you want to do with it.
If you want to use it to reconstruct "Ancient Pagan Celtic" religion, then
no way, leave your hands off it.
If you want to study the early modern Welsh culture, or the traditions
associated with the Gorsedd, or similar topics, then it is without doubt a
very important source.
