    Encyclopedia of Celtic Mythology and Folklore

    This Encyclopedia of Celtic Mythology and Folklore has been posted on Academia. Apart from the dubious claim at the start that no ancient people called themselves Celts, it looks like an unusually useful resource that should prove of interest to some here.

    There is another book of the same type, although it's about twenty years old by now. Dictionary of Celtic Mythology, by James MacKillop. It was published by the Oxford Press.

    That one is 15 years old, so they're not too far off. The bow to the Celto-Skeptics in the introduction was kind of obligatory back in 2004. Actually, it's amazing it wasn't much worse.

    I glanced over the intro in the MacKillop book; one long paragraph goes over the term "Celtic" as applied to people. The entries are heavily sourced and pretty matter of fact, even dry.

    That looks like a really great coffee table book.

    I'm one of those people old enough to prefer books in print and hard cover form.
