    1. This is far more of a superb reference book than it is an easy, cover-to-cover read. Having said that the introduction and appendices are superbly written and informative. The real meat of the book is in its contents though.You will find books covering the Gods of the Celts, or the Irish or the Welsh and even a few covering the Germanic and Saxon Gods, or the Vikings, or the Romans/Greeks but rarely will you find a book covering many of the deities associated with a given area over a course of h [...]

    2. Sorita D’Este and David Rankine have put together an awesome book that discusses all the Gods and Goddesses tht were were worshipped on the British Aisles. I think there were clese to 147 of them give or take a few. The deities come frm a variety of different pantheons ranging from Welsh, Irish,Gaulic,Saxon, Norse, Roman, Greek and Egyptian.

    4. This book is by far one of the best and most intensely researched that I have read. It doesn't just stick with Gods from the British Isles but also those that moved here via the Romans, Vikings etc. If they were worshipped in the UK, then there is a really good chance that they will be listed in this comprehensive book.One thing that I loved about this book was the authors' explanation at the start of the book as to who was included and why. The table of contents and the links included in this k [...]

    5. Not bad, covered a wide-range of predominantly Irish and Welsh deities, very few Scottish deities and some of the Greek/Roman and Egyptian overlapping deities that have been mentioned in the British Isles. Very basic descriptions of the deities.
