  • Description

    Ceremony on a hilltop as part of the Welsh National Eisteddfod.

    No titles.

    Wales.

    Various shots of a ceremony on a hilltop involving numerous people in Druid-style costume - presumably part of the ancient Bardic rites of the Eisteddfod festival. M/S of a man blowing on a bugle. The others gather around as the head man, wearing a crown of leaves, hands a large horn to a woman in robes. High angle shot of the crowds of people milling about on the hillside.
