Description - Companion to Arthurian and Celtic Myths and Legend by Mike Dixon-Kennedy
Bringing together two of the most fertile areas of myth and legend, The Companion to Arthurian and Celtic Myth and Legend is a unique reference tool which based on wide research and contains some of the most colourful myths and legends in history. It sets out to clarify this fascinating field and to provide an authoritative guide to the people, places, events and traditions associated with Arthur and Ireland, Wales and the Celtic fringe. Clearly written and lavishly illustrated, the book explores this period from the very beginning, through the Celtic Golden Age - when a Gallic army could plunder Rome - to the collapse of Celtic society at the hands of the Roman empire, and its later revival, especially in the Gaelic countries, such as Brittany, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Great Britain.
