About This Item

In this generously illustrated introduction to the world of the Celts, Simon James charts their way of life from farming to feasting, their wars, their gods, and their superb craftsmanship in metal, wood, and stone. He covers the neglected subject of Celtic life under Roman rule, particularly in Gaul and Britain, and the continuing traditions in Ireland after AD 400, when a Celtic renaissance gave birth to heroic tales, masterpieces of enameled metalwork, and renowned illuminated manuscripts.

This copy, the first reprint, is in excellent condition. There is a tiny bit of dappling to the cover and minor wear to the dust jacket, as shown.

192 pages, including loads of photos and illustrations. Black and white + color.
