Publisher's Summary

In this audiobook, you will find the most important facts about Celtic mythology, a people that is often overlooked or undervalued. Their tales and folklores have their routes in ancient customs and historical events, and with those backgrounds, you will get a greater understanding of the Celts. You will discover:

  • More about the Celtic society, their religion, arts, and the collapse of that society. 
  • The Celtic history, traces of their language, and their relationship with the Romans who had conquests on the British Isles.
  • Facts about their technology, warfare, and false stories or notions you may have heard about them.  
  • A concise outline of the Celtic gods and goddesses they worshipped and revered. 
  • Explanations about festivals and rites, as well as what they thought of cosmology and eschatology.
  • The reason why the Celts were esteemed as one of the most terrifying societies in the world, as well as the others that made the top five.

Celtic mythology is intricate, complex, and the ideals behind their mythological beliefs were often intertwined with real-life events. This audiobook will examine how both myth and fact contributed to the culture and traditions of the Celts and how these influences and stories continue to live on throughout the centuries.

Captivating, informative and fun present. Thankfulness to this book, now i have a solid belief of the Celtic gods and how the gods and nature were tangled and pure to the Celtic people.

Inconsistent Tone

The main portion of the book sounded like a dull history lesson until the last chapter, when dry became sarcastic and vulgar (but not entertaining). The last 11 minutes did not match the style or tonality of the rest of the book. When I pick up an audiobook called Celtic Mythology, I want to listen to mythology, not history mingling with the author's opinion. Twice were instances of calling the Celts "superior" to other peoples and the last chapter included a homophobic joke. The mythology of the Celts wasn't even mentioned until chapter 6, 36 minutes into the audiobook.
