I just happened to come across a book with Celtic knots woven around the
borders on the cover. It is a 1963 paperback called Sword at Sunset, a King
Arthur book by Rosemary Sutcliff. (That's beside the point.) There are
little dragons at the top and a sword on the side. Mandalas from knots,
comes to mind. Geometric patterns, an Escher-like circle comes to mind. I
was in a 6th grade music class yesterday and the teacher put on Riverdance
as an example of Celtic music. She also talked about how that was the era
of the inventions of a lot of instruments, stringed and horn...and of
Written Music. (Illustrated Manuscripts - Book of Kells previously
mentioned in this web.) Dragons, knights, ladies would appeal to me if I
were doing a Celtic unit. Linda
