Abstract : The Welsh antiquarian Edward Lhyud (1660-1709) came to Brittany in 1701 to collect linguistics and historical materials concerning Breton and Britanny. Except for the Breton words contained in Archaeologia Britannica and some letters published by Gunther in 1945, we don't have much information about Lhuyd's voyage. Yet, some unpublished documents discovered in Oxford provide some evidence for the identification of Breton spoken in North-Western Britanny more than three hundred years ago. In these documents also learn more about Archaeologia Britannica's Breton vocabulary and its sources.
