Here is a collection of links to useful sites related to the ancient Celts. As always, there is more to come, this site is still very much a work in progress. Only links to sites of a high scholarly quality have been selected. This does not mean that I necessarily agree with or endorse as accurate everything you will find on these sites, of course. If you own or know of an academic-quality site pertaining to the ancient Celts that you feel should be here, please feel free to E-mail me and I will consider posting it.

The Celtic Inscribed Stones Project (CISP) - The name says it all. Alright, well, not exactly! Not a catalogue of anything that's Celtic and lithic, but focuses mainly on the British Isles 400-1100. Why is it on Ancient-Celts.Com? Don't those dates indicate the Middle Ages? Well, it covers ogham, which is borderline ancient/Medieval, so...

School of Celtic Studies - The website of the School of Celtic Studies at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. Contains a link to BILL, a searchable database of publications on Irish philology

The Perseus Project - Contains a valuable collection of works attributed to Greek and Roman authors, in electronic, searchable format (Click "classics" under "Perseus contents" on the left-hand side of the screen to go there). Useful for researching the Greek and Roman sources on the Celts - for instance, searching De Bello Gallico for references to a specific term or name. Unfortunately, not all important works are there, and some are only included in part but not in whole.
