The fruit of a five-year research project at the Centre, this Encyclopedia is designed for the use of everyone interested in Celtic studies and also for those interested in many related and subsidiary fields, including the individual Celtic countries and their languages, literatures, archaeology, history, folklore, and mythology. In its chronological scope, the Encyclopedia covers subjects from the Hallstatt and La Tène periods of the later pre-Roman Iron Age to the beginning of the 21st century. Geographically, as well as including the Celtic civilizations of Ireland, Britain, and Brittany (Armorica) from ancient times to the present, it also covers the ancient Continental Celts of Gaul, the Iberian peninsula, and central and eastern Europe, together with the Galatians of present-day Turkey, and it then follows the Celtic diaspora into the Americas and Australia. Those primarily interested in Wales, Welsh literature, and the Welsh language will find the subjects treated in depth here within their broader context.
