John Kraft's original study of the labyrinths in Scandinavian churches, revised and
updated by Jeff Saward (2005) with map, table of locations and catalogues of the
individual labyrinths for each of the four Nordic countries where they are found.
Jeff Saward describes an unusual ‘coin’ decorated with a labyrinth, and the source
of its design.
And more archive articles in due course...

If there are articles in early and out-of-print editions of Caerdroia that you would
particularly like to see added to the Archive, let the editor know, and when he has
a spare moment, or three, he may well add them for you!
Since it was first produced in 1980, Caerdroia has published a multitude of papers,
articles and notes on many aspects of mazes and labyrinths - their history and distribution,
usage and development as well as theoretical matters and news items. Much of the
material in the earliest issues has long been superceded by later items, but a full
listing of all the relevant items from Caerdroia 6 (the first edition to appear in
magazine format) onwards is given in the Caerdroia Index section of this website.
The first 27 editions of Caerdroia are now out of print, and are unlikely to ever
be reprinted. As we are regularly asked for photocopies of articles from these earlier,
out of print editions, it would seem a good idea to start converting some of the
frequently requested articles into pages that can be viewed online, to create an
archive of some of these more interesting items.
It will be a gradual process - as and when we have time! But here are the articles
so far archived for your perusal - a selection from those out of print editions
and a few important items from more recent editions.
