This book is a beautifully illustrated survey of Celtic society, its history and belief, from its origins to the present day. Historical Atlas of the Celtic World traces the development of Celtic religion and mythology, and describes the flowering of their unique metalwork, sculpture, and illumination. The book draws on this superb legacy and interweaves it with a scholarly examination of Celtic culture, landscape, and history, ending in the Celtic revival of the past century.

Millions claim a Celtic ancestry and are fascinated by the unique culture of their predecessors. This exquisitely illustrated book provides an expertly crafted view into the Celtic past, while emphasising the relevance of Celtic culture and identity today.
