Overview

The Celts, the 'family' of tribes which occupied and dominated vast swathes of Europe between 2000 BC and the 2nd Century AD, left virtually no written history, and scholars have been forced to rely almost entirely on the artistic evidence to glean a true picture of these remarkable peoples. With beautifully reproduced examples of religious items, household materials, items of clothing and weapons of war, The Art of the Celts provides insight into the daily lives, spiritual beliefs and often violent history of a society that is steeped in the mists of legend and antiquity, but which nevertheless continues to fascinate today.
