The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 244

In that country is a great sea of gravel, which flows


and ebbs, and on which there is (always) a great storm, and yet there is not a single drop of water or brine therein. Howbeit it doth everything that the salt sea doth, and there is never any dwelling upon it; and no one knows what there is on the other side of it; and in it much fish are taken, which are not like the fish of the sea or the river, and good is their taste and their odour.
