• One of the most comprehensive treatments of Celtic civilization ever written.
• A cornerstone of Western civilization and the major source of its social, political, and literary values, Celtic civilization occupied the whole of Western Europe for more than a millennium.
• Unlike the Middle Eastern forerunners of the Greco-Roman world, Celtic civilization is still alive today.
This comprehensive treatment of Celtic civilization peels back the layers of European history beyond the Greco-Roman influence to reveal the ancient Celtic people who were the real source of our Western social, political, and literary values. Drawing on myth as well as history, Markale's treatment is both original and convincing. Illustrations. (Inner Traditions International)
