Books on Irish and English culture

Hello guys. For a story I'm writing based on Irish/English mythology (ie. crows) I'm doing a couple of research on several topics, namely:

Historical Irish/English:

1) Village culture
2) Colloquial terms & sayings
4) Mythology
5) History and politics
6) Rituals and beliefs

To be a little more specific, around the time of the Middle Ages.

My story is set in a village, and for that I am looking to understand village hierarchy (eg. placement of living quarters, food, people, rituals, beliefs, etc.)

Being Asian, there are certain aspects of a foreign culture that I find difficult to understand/relate in words, so any and all information could be helpful, even if it's a book dealing with ancient healing medicine.

Thank you very much. :)
