Summary

Summary

Giants and monsters, seafolk and fairies, halflings and sprites, witches, wizards and ghosts. These are just some of the inhabitants which appear in the tapestry that is the fabric of Celtic legend and mythology. With stories from the ancient Celtic lands of Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, Cornwall, Wales and Brittany, Dr Bob Curran explores the many facets of Celtic tradition as portrayed in its creatures and imaginary peoples, showing how tradition and legacy continue to underpin much of modern Celtic culture.
