Overview

Did you know that chain armor, horseshoes, and the iron ploughshares were invented by Celts? An Irish monk wrote Western Europe's first great philosophical work? Or that the White House was designed and built by a man of Celtic descent?

Never before has there been such an abundance of information---much hitherto obscure---about his remarkable people. Spanning history and traversing continents from 1000 BC to the present, Who Were the Celts? documents the long reach and complex struggles of the Celts. It also details the achievements of their many-faceted culture, whose influence has been felt in art, literature, music, science and technology, warfare, and politics.

Who Were the Celts? is a fast-paced adventure---and a sheer pleasure to read. Illustrated with maps and photographs, it makes the distant and glorious past as vivid as the present.
