The Celts



EUR 9.59

In the eyes of the world Ireland is a Celtic country - but just how Celtic is Ireland? Do we know whether the Celts arrived at all? What was their real impact on this western island at the edge of the known world? This work explores "Celtic Ireland" from the 8th century BC to the coming of Christianity to Ireland, in the 5th century. Illustrations and quotations are used in the book to clarify the different strands of evidence - from Julius Caesar writing on the Celts to evidence of Celtic art, ringforts, bog bodies and the cult of the human head.
