Celtic Myths – Celtic Mythology Books PDF
Aldhouse-Green, Miranda J.
University of Texas 1993 Dewey Dec. 936
“Celtic Myths explores the mythology and beliefs of the pagan Celts between about 600 B.C. and A.D. 400. At their peak, the Celtic peoples inhabited a vast area of Europe, Great Britain, and Ireland. As non-literates, they have left no written record of their lives, their beliefs, and the stories which were such an important part of their culture; however, contemporary commentators from the Classical world, later Christian scribes recording oral traditions, and the archaeological evidence can give us fascinating, though fragmented, glimpses. Dr. Green draws on all these sources to discuss the myths and the religious beliefs and ritual which she believes inform them.” -Publisher
Contents: How do we know about Celtic myths? — The divine race of Ireland — Myths of the Ulster Cycle — Some early Welsh myths — The divine lovers — The sky and sun myths — Fertility, land and water — Animals in cult and myth — Druids, sacrifice, and ritual — Death, rebirth, and the Otherworld. Celtic mythology books, Folklore books.

Scandinavian Mythology PDF – Norse Mythology Books PDF
Davidson, H.R. Ellis
Hamlyn 1969 Dewey Dec. 936
“The religion of Odin, god of death and magic, of Thor, ruler of the thunder, of Freyr, god of fertility, the tales of Valkyries and berserks, of dragons and giants—all are often thought of as being the creation of the Vikings. These brave adventurers roamed the world from Greenland to the Volga and from the Mediterranean to the North American coast during the ninth and tenth centuries. Certainly the religion of the Northern gods reached its highest point of devotion and fervour during this period. But the mythology of Scandinavia, Germany and Iceland can be traced back as far as the Bronze Age. The development of the myths over so many centuries and in various lands in itself makes a fascinating story, and indeed one for which evidence is continually being sought and found.” -Publisher. Norse Mythology books, Viking Myths books, Norse mythology goddesses, Norse mythology Loki.

Celtic Goddesses: Warriors, Virgins and Mothers – Celtic Mythology Books Free
Green, Miranda J.
Braziller 1996 Dewey Dec. 936
“Celtic goddesses presided over war, nature, animals, healing and fertility. Considerable recent interest has been focused on the role of goddesses in ancient societies, though not always with a clear eye on the actual source material. This book, written by one of the leading scholars of Celtic myth and religion, examines the significance of the female in Celtic belief and ritual as expressed in surviving archaeological remains and written sources.” -Publisher
