This unit looks closely at one of the most influential motifs in early Celtic literature and culture. We will examine a series of narratives (in translation) and place them in the context of early Irish and Welsh conceptions of cosmology, landscape and pilgrimage: including Classical accounts of the doctrines of the Druids, stories of the Tuatha Dï¿½anann; legends of Irish voyaging saints and heroes, as well as the Welsh the Mabinogi tales.
