In the past week The Guardian has had two articles about the identification of what has become known as the Bristol Merlin, about which I posted in Merlin manuscript recovered in Bristol
These additional articles give a translation of part of the text which has been recovered as well as pictures of one of the paste-downs.
The discovery may well affect Arthurian studies in that they might possibly indicate another thirteenth century Vulgate source for Malory in his composition of the Morte d’Arthur in the later fifteenth century
The articles can be viewed at Merlin tale fragments discovered in Bristol archives and at Fragments of medieval Merlin manuscript found in Bristol library reveal ‘chaster’ story
There is also an account of the discovery from Medievalists.net which recapitulates the already published story of the finding of the fragments but adds more about the contents of the text. This article can be read at Manuscript fragments of the Merlin legend now published
