The School of Celtic Studies is pleased to offer an increasing number of publications online, free of charge. Naturally, all books will continue to be made available in printed form, and we believe these are excellent value. However, we have several aims in providing these electronic editions:

  • To raise interest in the field of Celtic Studies in general, to both academics and the general public alike
  • To promote wider awareness of, and access to, the work of the School of Celtic Studies
  • To allow potential customers to preview publications before buying

Printed editions may be obtained through our online bookshop.
