From all six Celtic cultures - Irish, Scots, Welsh, Cornish, Manx and Breton - Ellis has included popular myths and legends, as well as bringing to light exciting tales which have been lying in manuscript form, translated and unknown to the modern general reader.
Peter Berresford Ellis is a foremost authority on the Celts and the author of many books in the field including, Celt and Greek (1997), Celt and Roman (1998) and The Ancient World of the Celts (1998). Under the pseudonym Peter Tremayne he is the author of the bestselling Sister Fidelma murder mysteries set in Ireland in the 7th Century.
