Welcome to Digital Medievalist.com, and Celtic Studies Resources.

You can read more about this site, but here’s a quick and dirty introduction. This site was born in 1997 as set of pages on AOL. I moved to my own domain in 2000.

Celtic Links

These are Celtic Web resource sites about Celtic languages, cultures, and literatures that I have found interesting and

If you are utterly sick of things Celtic, I’ve included a few pages about some of my other obsessions.

I continue my customary practice of maintaining this site sans grammar or spelling errors. My firm adherence to this policy does not preclude occasional lapses into hitherto undiscovered Continental Celtic languages. ;)

The number of visitors to this site since May 31, 1997 is at least morfessor
