In Mabinogion, the tale of Lludd and Llewelys, tells of long ago when the white dragons (the Saxons) invaded and battled with the red dragons (the Welsh). Near the end of the battle, they became drunk on mead and were buried together in a stone coffin in the center of Britain. Legend also has it that as long as they remain buried together, no other may invade the island.
Another version of this tale appears in The Enchanted World: Dragons from Time Life Books, 1984.
