Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Written for a general audience, this survey of Irish prehistory is a companion to a three-part PBS series in which the authors tour monasteries, sacred caves, and ring forts accompanied by scholars, poets, storytellers, and archaeologists. McCaffrey (Irish history, culture, and language, Johns Hopkins U.) and Eaton, a television and film producer focus on research that has begun to contradict long-held beliefs and shed light on such intriguing questions as how Ireland developed a Celtic culture and language although there is little archaeological evidence for the presence of Celts in the area. Given the book's television connection, it's surprising that only a few b&w photos support the text.
