Welcome

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

You can read more about this site here, but here’s a quick and dirty introduction. This site began as a tiny set of pages on AOL in 1997. I moved to my own domain in 2000. Celtic Studies Resources began as an effort to provide resources about Celtic studies, particularly resources about medieval and earlier Celtic history, mythology, language, linguistics and cultures. This site today is also a maze of twisty little passages (that’s my homage to Pat Murphy), with various other sorts of nooks and crannies that reflect my person interests, both academic and technical.

My “professional” site is here.

My Celtic Studies blog Scéla, featuring opinionated commentary on things medieval and Celtic is here.

These are the basic sections of this site:

Reading Lists

These annotated reading lists contain books and articles that are scholarly in nature, though they are nonetheless interesting and provocative. I chose them based on personal taste and availability.
If you are new to Celtic studies, I suggest some books for a Celtic studies starter kit.

Reviews

These reviews are for a variety of books related, however tangentially, to things medieval or Celtic. They are longer, and possibly, even more opinionated than the annotations in the bibliographies. Some of the reviews, while by me, are hosted off site.

Opinionated Celtic FAQs

These are some of the questions that people frequently ask me. I don’t have many of the answers, though I do have opinions about lots of things, including where to find Celtic books, how to pronounce “Celtic,” what the Celtic languages are, who the druids were, where to learn a Celtic language, a Celtic Studies “Starter Kit,” and the best and only Celtic computer.

Celtic Web Resources

These are sites about Celtic languages, cultures, and literatures that I have found interesting and
useful.

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. ;)
