Publisher's Summary

The ancient culture of the Celts, with its folklore and fairytales, has sparked the imagination of many. The mythological creatures, stories, and legends have their enchanting flair and have certainly been the topic of many historians and scholars. It is time to dive deeper into some of the best-known myths and epic ventures of the gods, goddesses, and magical realms from the British Isles. You will hear about things like: 

  • Cultural backgrounds and the way it integrated with the Celts’ lives
  • The four cycles of Irish Mythology. This may sound surprising to you
  • The Selkies and their connection to the Celts
  • The coming of Finn and all the drama around it
  • The Fianna of Erin and the reason why this is such a popular story
  • Different tales from the Ossianic cycle 

And much more! Celtic mythology is worth studying, and the moral lessons and interesting side notes on each of these myths can be enlightening and enriching.

RECOMMENDED.........

Bernard Hayes is a great writer.His book Celtic Mythology is an awesome book.It reveals to us we can be legends even only for one day. We can figure out how to grasp our interesting gifts. We can travel in this world and figure out how to move past constraint. It demonstrates to us how we can figure out how to cross the limits of enchantment and secret at the ascending of each new day. We can enter dull places and wind up illuminated.

Good introduction

A few extremely concise stories contextualised with a good amount of history and philosophy. Would make an ideal introduction for students
