Overview

Celtic Mythology by Catherine Bernard

The Celts were one of the great founding cultures of European civilization. Their origins can be traced back to the second millennium B.C. The Celts' original homeland was near the Rhine, Rhone, and Danube Rivers, in what is now Germany. By the first millennium B.C., however, the Celts began a massive expansion across Europe ... and their traditional stories reflect their movements. In Celtic Mythology, author Catherine Bernard has collected some of the most important myths of the Celtic world and presents them with an authentic appreciation for their unique characters, landscapes, and philosophies. Illustrations and expert commentary are included to promote further understanding of this distinctive group.
