British Gods and Goddesses
This workshop will provide an introduction to the gods and goddesses of ancient Britain – what we know about them from archaeological sources, Roman records, and their later representation in Welsh mythology. We will focus in particular on deities worshipped in the North such as Brigantia, Nodens, Belisama, Matrona, and Maponos. This will be followed by a ritual to honour Creiddylad, goddess of May, involving offerings of food, drink, and poetry (please bring a suitable poem), and a meditation.
