Celtic Books

Books about Celtic mythology were the inspiration behind much of what I read as a child. Books such as the Chronicles of Prydain and the Owl Service were steeped in ancient Welsh legend. Lord of the Rings was my favourite book during adolescence. I graduated into history books and was particularly interested in tales of Celtic warriors and the wars that they fought as documented by ancient writers. That interest has endured and many of the books listed in this store are part of my own personal collection of books pertaining to the Ancient Celts. I highly recommend all of the books shown on the first page shown above and I own most of them.
