and the legends and myths of the various groups that made up the Celtic peoples, including an overview of the Arthurian legends. Recommended as an introduction to Celtic myth.

A good, enjoyable, colorful (as in the pictures and art-work depicted) book! I definitely recommend this if you have a thing for the ancient (and modern) Celts!
