Caerdroia - the Journal of Mazes & Labyrinths
Caerdroia is the independent journal for the study of mazes and labyrinths
Founded in 1980 by Jeff Saward, and published annually, the journal acts as a forum
for historical and theoretical research, the publication of archive material and
as a monitor of current developments with the field.
Each edition contains illustrated papers, notes, news and views on the latest discoveries,
theories and ideas from researchers and enthusiasts worldwide, exchanging information
to help create a clearer picture of the origins and distribution of the enigmatic
labyrinth symbol and its descendants, from the earliest rock carvings and artefacts
through to modern puzzle mazes of ever increasing complexity and ingenuity.
Current subscribers to Caerdroia include maze and labyrinth researchers, archaeologists
and historians, artists and authors, designers and owners. The scope of the journal
continues to expand and depends on reader contributions of papers, articles, photographs
and press clippings - indeed anything of a labyrinthine nature. Caerdroia strives
to keep its readers up to date on current developments in the field of mazes and
labyrinths, both ancient and modern.
As a non-profit making journal dealing with a very specialised subject, Caerdroia
relies on reader contributions and subscriptions for support. If you are interested
in the history, development, diversity or potential of mazes and labyrinths in any
of their forms, perhaps you would care to join us on the path...
Published May 2014, our latest edition -Caerdroia 43- is now available by mail
order directly from Labyrinthos.
Forthcoming editions of Caerdroia are available by subscription. The annual subscription
fee provides the next edition of Caerdroia and helps support the process of producing
the journal, maintaining our archives and the on-going maintenance of this website.
