5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 15 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
I first read this book when I was in college. I was browsing the library shelves for Medieval English literature when I came across some Arthurian texts. I had always loved King Arthur tales and Ashe's books piqued my interest even further. Then, by accident I came upon The Mythology of the British Isles--it is such a wonderful book! Full of myths and their basises in history, lots of color pictures and drawings, and plenty of easy to read, easy to follow references.
This book will appeal to both amateurs and academics looking for more information on British Mythology. It goes beyond Arthur, delving into lesser known tales (Like that of Vortigern, Old King Cole, Prince Powyll of Powis and Rhiannon, etc.) and it gives rich historic details to fill in the gaps. Very reader friendly. A must have for those interested in these myths. For those familiar with Ashe's other works, this is true to form. A keeper!
