Annotation:
Miranda Green, Head of Research in Humanities and Reader in Archaeology at University of Wales College, presents a hugely comprehensive and entertaining volume of Celtic lore. From animals to the underworlds, from Albiorix to the Wheel-God, this dictionary illuminates ancient (500 BC to 400 AD) British and European beliefs and explains each concept concisely. With more than 400 entries, Green leaves no Celtic stone unturned, and plenty of illustrations add to the sense of history brought to life. The introduction places these legends and myths in their historical context, which adds to the impact of the book.
