Wales is a Celtic country and the Celts have always treasured oral learning and recitation. Indeed they have a passion for committing facts to memory rather than relying on the written word. So it is no surprise, as we can see from Anne Ross's study, that Welsh folklore and story-telling is so rich and varied.

See A. Ross 1999, p. People who wished to curse their enemies were in the habit of throwing bent pins into the well. In Anglesey, ffynnon Estyn had a strange reputation. Formerly the water used to be carried to the baptismal font. In recent times the local people have been unwilling to drink from it, saying that it was once a cursing well. Ceiniogau corff was the name given to the pennies that had been employed to close the eyes of a dead person, and these.

Folklore of Wales - Anne Ross. The Romano-British god Nodons, who appears in early inscriptions on stone, is reflected in the Welsh deity Nudd and must be cognate with the Irish god Nuadu. Wales is a Celtic country. He is one of the many Irish deities who figure in and whose attributes occur in Welsh folklore. Many of the ancient gods of Britain and Ireland figure in Welsh mythology in the role of superhuman heroes.

Ross has previously written explored topics that straddle the line between history and legend in Celtic Britain. Here she synthesizes academic work and collections of stories to present an overview of Welsh oral traditions ranging from the calendar and severed heads, to grail legends and supernatural birds and animals. The monochrome illustrations are not particularly high quality, but include many not seen in similar works. The book is distributed in the US by Arcadia. Annotation c.
