Watch The Secret of the Kells: a gorgeous animated film that mixes Celtic mythology with historical accounts of the monks who illuminated the Scriptures and then saved them during the Viking invasion. Great for all ages!
Read How the Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland's Heroic Role From the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe by Thomas Cahill: "The perfect St. Patrick's Day gift, and a book in the best tradition of popular history -- the untold story of Ireland's role in maintaining Western culture while the Dark Ages settled on Europe." Brian and I read this while we were in Ireland last summer. Fascinating and encouraging!
