Celtic Mythology book. Few of the myths and stories were written down at the tim Okay, I am slightly disappointed in this book. I was hoping for a little bit more of the legends, epics and Sagas themselves. Not a scholarly, Joseph Campbellesqe history/comparative mythology type book. Granted, finding one of those written in Modern English is quite difficult and about half of the book that isn't spent tell what completed remnants of Irish, Welsh and Gaulish legends remain do an excellent job of explaining what that is. Few of the myths and stories were written down at the time. Many that were probably destroyed.

Mac Cana’s Celtic Mythology and Sjoestedt’s Celtic Gods and Heroes complement each other very nicely, with differences in emphasis that contribute to a fuller picture than you’d be able to glean from either book alone. 6. Early Irish Myths and Sagas translated by Jeffrey Gantz. Now we come to the primary sources on Celtic mythology from the ancient and medieval worlds – in English translation, of course. Since the single greatest source of our current knowledge of Celtic mythology and religion comes from Old Irish literary works, any list of primary sources on the Celts should start with those Irish pieces. And since Green is one of the leading archaeologists of the Celtic world today, you can be sure that what you’re reading is top-notch in terms of its accuracy.

Many myths told of the otherworld. In this mysterious place, there was no work and no death, and the gods and spirits who lived there never got old. The Celts believed that humans could enter this enchanted place through burial mounds called sídhe, through caves or lakes, or after completing a perilous journey. Early Irish myths blend mythology and history by describing how Ireland was settled by different groups of Celtic deities and humans. Filled with magic and excitement, the tales tell of battles between forces of light and darkness. The legends are clearly rooted in Celtic mythology however, and references to Arthur appear in a number of ancient Welsh poems.
