Author: Pearce, Marion K.
Welcome to the world of the Celts, a world of magic, shapechanging, sorcery and divination, of heroism, strange rites and rituals. A world where legend mixed with fact, where the physical world and Otherworld blended together. By combining sources from Celtic mythology, archaeology and eye witness accounts from people of the time, we can build up an accurate picture of life all those years ago. This book presents a fascinating picture of Celtic religion, featuring places of worship, deities, the importance and significance of trees and animals, the use of bones, cults of the head and of the dead, burial practises and kingship. Marion Pearce is well known for her extensive articles on Celtic history and culture published in numerous magazines both in the UK and abroad. Illustrated by Simon Rouse.
