This new guide looks at the gods and goddesses of Celtic myth: at the nature of Celtic religion, with its rituals of sun and moon worship; and at the druids who served society as judges, diviners and philosophers. It also examines the many Celtic deities who were linked with animals and such natural phenomena as rivers and caves, or who later became assocaiated with local Christain saints. And it explores in detail the rich variety of Celtic myths; from early legends of King Arthur to the stories of the Welsh Mabinogi, and from tales of heroes including Cuchulainn, Bran mac Febail and the warrior queen Medb to tales of shadowy otherworlds.
