Our Little Celtic Cousin of Long Ago (Illustrated Edition)
Free Online
by Evaleen Stein
"The story of Ferdiad, a boy of Ireland, in the time of High King Brian Boru, when the Danes were pillaging the Irish countryside. How his foster-father Angus becomes poet to the High King and how Ferdiad himself recovers a lost treasure. Gives a glimpse into the customs and social life of the Celts, with special emphasis on their artistic achievements, including the Book of Kells and the stories of Cuculain." quote from The Baldwin Project

BBC Animated Tales: Macbeth

*Minor cursing, nudity on a male child, violence, witches
The animation is kind of cheesy, but you get a good idea of Shakespeare's version of the story in a small amount of time.
