Synopsis

In this brilliantly illustrated guide to Celtic history and culture, newly available in paperback and at a popular price, Simon James charts the Celts' way of life from farming to feasting, their wars, their gods, and their superb craftsmanship in metal, wood and stone. Also highlighted is Celtic life under Roman rule, particularly in Gaul and Britain, and the continuing traditions in Ireland after AD 400, when a Celtic renaissance gave birth to heroic tales, masterpieces of enamelled metalwork and renowned illuminated manuscripts.
