The Ancient Celts

The Ancient Celts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For two and a half thousand years the Celts have continued to fascinate those who have come into contact with them, yet their origins have remained a mystery and even today are the subject of heated debate among historians and archaeologists. In this erudite and profusely illustrated history, Barry Cunliffe explores the archaeological reality of these bold warriors and skilled craftsmen of barbarian Europe who inspired fear in the Greeks and Romans. Tracing the emergence of chiefdoms and their migrations as far as Bosnia and the Czech Republic, he assesses the disparity between the traditional and contemporary information on the Celts and offers new insight into the true identity of this ancient people.

Synopsis:

The Celtic "barbarians from the north" were feared for their ferocity in battle, and admired for their skill in crafts. Exploring the archaeological reality of the Iron Age Celts, this study traces the emergence of chiefdoms, patterns of expansion and migration, and the Celtic identity.
