Product description

Focusing upon the horse in Celtic culture, this text should be of general interest as well as of importance within the wider context of horsemanship and military tactics in Medieval Britain and Europe. It draws on pagan Celtic religion, archaeology, iconography, linguistics, literary sources and folklore to give a general picture of the horse in Celtic culture, with the emphasis firmly on medieval Welsh perspectives.
