Summary

Summary

The Celtic tradition is one of the most ancient in Europe, with roots going back nearly 3000 years. Today there is much to be learned from the Celtic world view, with its emphasis on the recognition of the unseen world and the vital part it plays in our relationship with the physical landscape. This work shows the holy sites of Britain, Ireland and mainland Europe through Celtic eyes, reinvesting each place in the landscape with its ancient spiritual, symbolic and mythological importance - giving insight into how we can renew our lapsed relationship with the sacred landscape today.
