A Brief History of the Druids (Brief History)
Synopses & Reviews
Shrouded in legend, the mysterious cult of the ancient Druids continues to fascinate, inspiring latter-day imitators who often are only a poorly researched and romantic reflection of Druidic lore. In this compelling and readable history, respected Celtic scholar Peter Berresford Ellis explores who the Druids really were and what role they played in the Celtic world. Ellis provides a fresh and convincing interpretation of the facts, based on both archaeological and etymological findings. "Remarkable ... offers much for the academician as well as the general reader. Fascinating reading!"—Joseph A. King, author of Ireland to North America
Shrouded in legend and lore for centuries, the lives of the ancient Druids continue to invoke fascination to this day. This compelling history explores who the Druids really were and what role they played in the Celtic world.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 282-292) and index.
