About the Book

Stories of the ancient deities that have shaped the mythological landscape of Britain and Ireland

Book Synopsis

Layer by layer, talking through time itself, these tales of the ancient gods and goddesses make up the bedrock of the mythological landscapes of these islands. Through the ages this has been the meeting place of successive cultures, each bringing their own stories to glorify those beings with super human powers. Despite their immortality, these divinities are nevertheless vulnerable, depending on the voices and memories of people to celebrate their wondrous exploits.

Between these covers you will meet the divinities once revered throughout Britain and Ireland, not through lists in some dusty encyclopedia, but through the stories of their deeds, famous and infamous in equal part. The reader will enjoy the tales themselves and in the unfolding insights they bring to the different cultures that they represent.
