    I bought a book on Mythology … featuring Classical, Norse and Celtic. The Classical(Greek) and Norse I was mostly familiar with, but the Celtic myths were unknown to me.

    Sorry, Rhiannon. These guys are sports fans, not students of mythology. Try tickling them with myth-made-funny. You could call it…[you know].

    Does Enya count as a Celtic legend? :-)

    Those guys pronounce Celtic like “Seltic”, whereas Rhiannon would pronounce it like ’Keltic"

    " I bought a book on Mythology … featuring Classical, Norse and Celtic. The Classical(Greek) and Norse I was mostly familiar with, but the Celtic myths were unknown to me.".

    Really? Start with Merlin the Magician, aka Myrrdin, who at different times assisted a King, usually identified as Arthur. The Venerable Bede carefully recorded all the known history of the British Isles, including a crucial battle to keep the Angles at bay. Arthur was most likely Field Marshall of this war, yet this is the only
    King’s name Bede omits.

    The Red and White books are rich in established tradition, and the translations by Guest are accessible, compiled as The Mabinognion. Many important myths began there. Have you ever heard of the Incredbile Hulk? Stolen directly from Finn MacCool(Welsh, well technically Gaelic).

    Ever heard of the Rolling Stones’ Sympathy fo the Devil? Definitely inspired by and strongly resembling Song of Taliesin.

    Unrelated: Geneticists and Anthropologists are starting to think Gaels and Celts were different groups that occasionally lived side by side, but rarely interbred.

    Some have put forth the idea that (King) Arthur was a strong Celtic clan leader that brought the various clans together, and did weapon trade with Roman ships. (Damascus steel? Excalibur?) Bronze swords were once cast in marble and the phrased used for removing the sword was to pull it from the stone. Also presented was that the volcanic winter caused by the 535 Krakatoa explosion may have been the cause for the illness that claimed the land.

    My father invited me to a summer solstice celebration with his friends. Unfortunately I kept pronouncing “Celtic” with a soft “C” rather than a hard “C.” His friends didn’t seem to mind, but my dad did. I wonder if he was worried about fitting in with his bumpkin friend spoiling everything.

    Watch out: there were “Celts” and then there were “Celts”, coming into the areas at different times and from different places, the first being all but aboriginal, the second coming in later by waves (many of them at the same time as the Gauls of France: the Gael Scot Eber of Scotland and the Gauls, among others of these waves, being difference tribes of the same people cf. Huxley).
