A masterful blend of history, geography, and literature
Arthurian Legends and Celtic Tradition
For the serious reader, a classic work by Jean Markale, a man part Breton, part-Irish, and all Celt.
Markale is the author of many books about the civilisation of the Celts, particularly on the place of women in the Celtic world. As a child, living close to the forest of Broceliande, his grandmother told him the ancient strange legends, and he subsequently devoted forty years to studying and teaching the history of the Celtic peoples
Every student of mythology has at least one Markale on the shelf. A brilliant man, and King of the Celts, despite its stupid name, is a brilliant book.
