Overview

It is for an Anglo-Celtic people that this account of the early history, the religion, and the mythical and romantic literature of the Celtic race is written. It is hoped that that people will find in it things worthy to be remembered as contributions to the general stock of European culture, but worthy above all to be borne in mind by those who have inherited more than have any other living people of the blood, the instincts and the genius of the Celt.

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.
