Intriguing, sometimes obscure, entertaining journey through Celtic myth. From shape-shifting to JACK O'LANTERN, and mermaids to fairies, this neat book avoids being stuffy. It's tremendously enlightening -- with the history of a British icon like THE WHITE HORSE OF UFFINGTON explained, and the European roots of THE GREEN MAN. A book complemented by some effective, simple black and white illustrations.

Author: Rosemarie Anderson

Author: Richard Brassey

Boudicca (or Boadicea) was the first major recorded figure in British history. Queen of the (now Eastern English) British tribe, the Iceni, Boudicca took on the might of the Roman army, and was victorious for a time, until her defeat in 61 AD. She committed suicide rather than face capture.
