Celtic Mythology: A Captivating Guide to the Gods, Sagas and Beliefs (2017)
The Celts were a people who lived throughout central Europe from about the 500s BC to the AD 700s. In this book, you will discover the various aspects of Celtic beliefs, gods, and sagas gaining a general overall picture of their culture. Their stories will be brought to life so all the details are more than merely a bunch of dry facts.
This splendidly illustrated study by the distinguished Celticist T. W. Rolleston masterfully retells the great Celtic myths and illuminates the world that spawned them.
First written down in the eighth century AD, these early Irish stories depict a far older world—part myth, part legend and part history. Rich with magic and achingly beautiful, they speak of a land of heroic battles, intense love and warrior ideals, in which the otherworld is explored and men mingle freely with the gods.
