Overview

At the start of the first millennium B.C., a civilization formerly centered around the headwaters of the Rhine, Rhone, and Danube Rivers suddenly exploded in all directions through Europe. By the third century B.C., this civilization, which today we refer to as the Celts, had spread from Ireland in the west to Turkey in the east, and from Belgium in the north to Spain in the south. Small wonder, the Celts have come to be called the first Europeans! In this book, Peter Berresford Ellis, a foremost authority on the Celts, offers an intricate view of their world, discussing their mysterious origins and early history and describing their rich and complex society. Themed chapters cover particular aspects of Celtic life—kings and chieftans, druids, warriors, women, farmers, physician, cosmology, builders, artists and craftsman, architecture, religion, and myth and legend. A lively mix of dazzling, full-color photographs and illustrations depict the landscape of the Celtic world and the art, artifacts, and architecture of their astonishing culture. Color photos. 8 1/2" x 11".

    So much more than a history . . .

    This book is wonderful to discover, in depth, celtic culture. Most books I've read about the Celts often have great history but only hints or vague references to Celtic life. Not this one! From Celtic craftsman and farmers and physicians to architecture and religion, this book brings mainland and insular Celtic society to life. Ellis backs his writing up with great research, and puts it together in a flowing, easy-to-read, and organized fashion. I can't wait to buy Ellis' other titles!
