Mythology/Folklore Links

What is Mythology?


Mythology is not just a collection of tales "made up" by our predecessors.  There is much truth in them.  

Here are some links about myth, in general, and the role that they have played in civilizations since the dawn of language:

    Definition of myth for a Mythology Class
    Myth Criticism
    The Illusion of Myth-less-ness


    
This collection of links is heavy on Gaelic lore, but if you look, there is lore from other Celtic nations, as well.
