North Wales Celtic "Land of the Dead?"

A 19th century map may be the key to a Celtic mystery: the location of the legendary Land of the Dead. According to the map, it may be in the Ruabon and Halkyn Mountains in North Wales.

A concentration of burial sites coupled with a 19th century map at Llangollen town hall, as well as an ancient Welsh work entitled the Stanzas of the Graves, lead researchers to believe that North Wales is the location of the Land of the Dead. “The Stanzas indicate people of nobility from all over the Celtic world were brought here for burial, making it one of their most important and sacred places," said Steve Blake, author of the Keys to Avalon.
