Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Martell has assembled a fact-filled, visually attractive look at the history and customs of the Celtic people. Information is gathered in short paragraphs and arranged under subheadings and headings for easy accessibility. Daily life, crafts, houses, foods, government, and weapons are not only described, but also pictured in full-color drawings and photographs of museum objects and archaeological findings. As an added attraction, transparencies are inserted over architectural drawings that, when lifted, reveal the interiors of fortresses, homes, and burial sites. Martell's What Do We Know about the Celts? (Peter Bedrick, 1993), for a slightly younger age group, contains much of the same information and has a similar format. This new publication is better organized, richer in historical detail, and contains many more drawings, and, of course, the intriguing transparent overlays. It fulfills its purpose of providing easily acquired, visual and textual material for reports.-Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
