• The Digital Medievalist | Celtic Studies Resources Store

    I frequently have visitors to my site ask me where to buy books about Celtic studies, and what books they should look for. So I started first listing books by category and subject on my site then built this Amazon store. These are not exhaustive lists, by any means. I’ve tried to list standard sources that are relatively easy to find and well-respected. Every book here that is specifically Celtic in scope is by an author who reads at least one of the Celtic languages. I’ve also listed Fantasy and SF books using Celtic mythology as inspiration. The books in the Celtic Studies category are books that are regarded as…

  • Where can I Learn a Celtic Language?

    Check your local colleges and universities; you would be surprised at how many of them have courses in Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh and Breton. Some even offer Cornish and Manx. You could look on the web; there are a lot of language resources there. You can also order books to teach yourself. In Southern California, you might want to avail yourself of the Irish cultural programs, including language, dance and music, offered by CRAIC. You might be interested in the Maynooth Celtic Summer School, staffed by leading Celticists and held every third year since 1989 in Maynooth, Ireland. The specifics on this page are out of date, but the contacts…

    Celtic Fonts and Backgrounds

    From a rough analysis of my logs and the stats collected by Site Meter the most popular interior page of my site is the one on Celtic Fonts, and the most frequently entered search phrase, in terms of my Celtic Studies Resources is “Celtic backgrounds.” Now, I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure the people searching on “Celtic backgrounds” are not seeking Celtic cultural history, but rather, web backgrounds. That said, I’ve created an annotated page of links to sites with Celtic inspired web art here.

    The Da Costa Hours is currently in the collection of The Morgan Library, where it is cataloged as MS M.399.

  • 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…
