Overview

‘The most powerful representation yet of the race which has repeatedly changed history as we know it’ – The Scotsman ‘Brimming with interesting facts … instructive and wide-ranging’ – Cal McCrystal, Independent on Sunday ‘The best picture of the Celtic race yet written’ – South Wales Echo ‘Lovingly traces the remnants of a once-powerful people through language, ancient place names, farms, fortresses, harbours and, most of all, through their connection to the sea’ – Irish Times Alistair Moffat’s journey, from the Scottish islands and Scotland, to the English coast, Wales, Cornwall and Ireland, ignores national boundaries to reveal the rich fabric of culture and history of Celtic Britain which still survives today. This is a vividly told, dramatic and enlightening account of the oral history, legends and battles of a people whose past stretches back many hundred of years. The Sea Kingdoms is a story of great tragedies, ancient myths and spectacular beauty.
