Marged Haycock who is based in the Dept. of Welsh and Celtic in Aberystwyth
Uni has written a lot about the significance of mead in early Welsh (and
other) heroic poetry- I think some of her output is in English (the rest
would be in Welsh).
She is a respected mediaevalist, though her husband Patrick Sims-Williams is
probably even more so- he qualifies for 'top' and 'eminent'. I am not sure
if he has written about mead/feasting, though.
I'll see if I can come up with some titles, if anyone is interested. We
covered the topic during my Celtic Studies degree, but that was a good few
years ago now.
