I was wondering if anybody can recommend any good historical novels that take place in Celtic times. By “good” I mean both fun to read and historically correct. Thanks for your suggestions.April 22, 2021 at 8:19 am #13443david pooleParticipant
This is not a question which I can answer properly for you, which raises a very good point in itself: I tend to read spiritual or factual books, not historical fiction. I am actually thinking of something related to Stonehenge here, but without having read the book or books in question I feel that it is unfair to make recommendations.April 23, 2021 at 11:39 am #13444DowrgiParticipant
Well, why not try with the actual mythologies and legends of the Celtic peoples? I’d say that’s a good way to get an insight into their worldview and culture. Historically correct, on the other hand, is a ‘big” question, so it depends what you’re looking for.
As a youngster, I used to enjoy Rosemary Sutcliff’s works set in Roman Britain, that might be a start.

Peter Beresford Ellis has compiled a collection of Celtic Mythology in a large tome, I haven’t checked it yet and am wondering what it is like; might be my next read soonApril 25, 2021 at 12:33 pm #13449Bart Van PeteghemParticipant
