Gods and Goddesses in Celtic Mythology The Celts lived in an age of wonder where gods and goddesses would have played an important part in daily life. The majority of Celtic families were farmers and so deities associated with cattle, such as the goddess Damona, would have been venerated with ceremonies as well as images being carried or engraved on stone by worshippers.
