Barry Cunliffe - The Ancient Celts (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780140254228
For two and half thousand years the ancient Celts have continued to fascinate all who have come into contact with them.
The archetypal `barbarians from the north', the Celts were feared for their ferocity in battle and admired as skilled craftsmen. For two and half thousand years the Celts have continued to fascinate all who have come into contact with them.
The Ancient Celts presents an absorbing account of the tribes whose origins and identity still provoke heated debate.
Exploring the archaeological reality of the Iron Age inhabitants of barbarian Europe, Professor Cunliffe traces the emergence of chiefdoms, patterns of expansion and migration, and the development of Celtic ethnicity and identity.

"This is a serious history of the Celts, examining the beginnings with the tribes of Europe, right through the eventual assimilation under the Romans and the final impact of the Germanic tribes. Since the Celtic peoples left no written accounts of their times, it is the archaeological data such as trading goods as well as the accounts of Caesar, and other Greek and Roman notables, who contributed the only written accounts albeit biased ones. It is largely concerned with The Celts throughout Europe, not just Britain. This book is very well done." - Goodreads Review.
