Celtic origins, heroes, and stories spring to life in T. W. Rolleston’s classic work, Celtic Myths and Legends. Spanning thousands of years and across thousands of miles, these myths and legends offer a glimpse into worlds long gone that continue to influence modern culture.
The book includes classical accounts of Celtic tribes in Europe that describe their lives, the ancient gods and world of nature that they worshiped during and after their migrations to Britain and Ireland. Rolleston also retells stories from the three major cycles of Irish legend and from the ancient Welsh corpus, interspersing these with erudite commentary that aids comprehension of this vast ancient world and its surviving literature.
