On, Welsh and Celtic Myths of the Night Sky …
Every culture has its stories and many cultures take their stories from the night sky as it is the one enduring feature in our landscape. The stars do to change so the heavens, their moving bodies (planets) and constellations were thought to be representations of gods and heroes in pre-literary cultures. This talk will feature Welsh and celtic interpretations of the star groups and will recapture the folk tales that relate to the sky.
