This Gumberg Library research guide is designed to connect users to  resources on Celtic Mythology and Legend. It covers myths, legends, folklore, and fairy tales of the Celtic peoples, particularly those of the British Isles, including the Irish, Welsh, and Scots.

(While King Arthur was a Celtic hero before being co-opted by the English, because of the amount and complexity of the Arthurian material, Arthur is not covered on this research guide. For help researching King Arthur, click on the "King Arthur and His Knights" link in the box on the lower left of the screen.)
