Animals in Celtic Life and Myth [Paperback]

Miranda Green (Author)
Review
"For those with a serious interest in Celtic prehistory, this is a book well worth having." -- American Journal of Archaeology
Product Description
For the Celts, a rural people whose survival depended solely upon their environment, natural phenomena, the elements, and animals, especially, merited their extreme respect. The Celts made both wild and domesticated species the focus of elaborate rituals as well as the basis of profound religious beliefs. Animals in Celtic Life and Myth examines the intimate relationship between humans and animals, in a society in which animals were special and central to all aspects of life.
Miranda Green draws on evidence from a variety of early Celtic documents, as well as archaeology and iconography, revealing that the Celts believed many animals to be sacred, either possessing divine status in their own right or acting as mediators between gods and humans.
