Chwedlau Celtaidd o Gymru

Croeso! Welcome!

The Celts are amongst the greatest peoples of European history. Long before Rome conquered the known world they shared many bonds of language, customs, art, and culture over a vast area. Celtic peoples lived not only in Britain and Ireland, but across Europe from Spain to Turkey and their history can be traced back twenty five centuries. The Celts of Wales lived in a lush, green land, shrouded in mists of magic and wonders. Their stories were passed on from generation to generation by storytelling, song and poetry. The "Otherworld" was the home of Celtic Gods or supernatural beings such as the "Fairy People" the "Tylwyth Teg". The Otherworld was considered to be the Celtic version of heaven.
