Barbarians or civilized peoples? Uncultured savages or fearsome warriors? The Celts have long been a subject of enormous interest, speculation, and misunderstanding. Before the Vikings, before the Anglo-Saxons, before the Roman Empire, the Celts dominated central and western Europe, but who exactly were the Celts and how have our perceptions of them changed throughout history? • Arranged thematically, A Dark History: Celts examines all aspects of their culture from religion to society, myths and legends to warfare and their expansion and decline in Europe. • Illustrated with 180 color and black-and-white photographs, maps, and artworks, A Dark History: Celts is an exciting history of one of the first great peoples of Europe.
