Caerdroia - the Journal of Mazes & Labyrinths
The 39th edition of Caerdroia is now available, somewhat delayed by travel and lecture
schedules in late 2009 and various other projects. Its 56 pages contain the usual
eclectic mix of new discoveries, studies of specific labyrinths, thoughts on matters
labyrinthine, from our contributors worldwide and the return of our regular Notes
& Queries section. This time around, pressure of space has forced us to hold over
several book reviews, but these will appear in Caerdroia 40. An appreciation of the
life and work of the late Jørgen Thordrup also appears in this edition.
