Relive the magic of captivating legends and folktales in this rich collection on Celtic Mythology.
In 58 BCE, when Julius Caesar – the famous Roman general – wrote a commentary on the Gallic wars, he described the “Celt” speaking people who lived in the area then known as the Gaul. These people had their own culture, gods, and beliefs – called Celtic Mythology – which were very different from the Romans.
The influence of this mythology, however, was not limited to a small territory. This culture spread across Europe, especially to the western nations of Britain, Ireland, France, and Spain.
The legacy of Celts is still alive, and you may even have encountered these traces of Celtic culture:
The languages spoken by modern-day Irish, Scottish, and Welsh people
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
The legends and pop-culture depictions of the shrieking spirit of Banshee
Conan the Barbarian, a very famous character appearing in films as well as comics
Bran Stark, from Game of Thrones, who becomes the three-eyed Raven
The above examples are just a handful of successors from the ancient Celtic culture, and the last two draw direct inspiration from Celtic mythology.
And there’s even more from where those came from...
