5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Cunnundrums, 16 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend (Paperback)
Professor Green is a world renowned academic, "working" archaeologist and prolific author. She is also, more importantly, a gifted writer with an enthusiasm and love for her subject that cannot fail to impress any that read her books.
Her depth of knowledge, her years of research and her keeness for detail are all evident, yet again, in Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend.
This book is an excellent companion to any work on the Celtic world, its legends and myths, and one that i recommend to any person who is interested in the subject, whether scholar, student or interested "layman".
The book covers everything from Gods and warriors to graves and goblets, and every other page has black and white photograhs to illustrate the subjects covered.
Celtic history is littered with "strange" names, places and events all of which can become a confusing and time consuming chore to decipher. Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend is the perfect "code breaker" for this historic enigma.
I for one, will be buying more of Miranda Green's books and strongly urge you to do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good glossary, 22 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend (Paperback)
I found this book very interesting indeed, and I liked the glossary/dictionary format in which it was laid out. There are many photographs too, to illustrate the ideas the author discussed. A definately scholarly source book for those with an interest in the Celtic traditions and symbolism.
