Developed from an early oral storytelling tradition dating back to the dawn of European culture, this is one of the oldest and most vibrant of Europe’s mythologies. From all six Celtic cultures – Irish, Scots, Welsh, Cornish, Manx and
Breton – Peter Berresford Ellishas included popular myths and legends, as well as bringing to light exciting new tales
which have been lying in manuscript form, untranslated and unknown to the modern general reader.

The author brings not only his extensive knowledge of source material but also his acclaimed skills of storytelling to produce an original, enthralling and definitive collection of Celtic myths and legends – tales of gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, magical weapons, fabulous beasts, and entities from the ancient Celtic world.


Good bedtime stories for all the family.
