The Celtic period was one of tremendous expansion, the last phase of European material and intellectual development before the Mediterranean world spread northwards over the Continent and linked it to modern times. Nora Chadwick's classic survey traces the rise and spread of the Celts, from their arrival in the British Isles in about the eighth century BC to the gradual transformation of their culture, initially under the Romans and later the Saxons.

Summary: Although there is no written record of their prehistoric culture, the Celtic people left behind much archaeological and anthropological evidence of a way of life that was highly evolved. Tracing this evolution from their arrival in the British Isles in about the eighth century B.C. to the gradual transformation of the Celtic culture under Roman and Saxon rule, this celebrated masterpiece introduces us to a proud and independent civilization rich in religion, art, and literature yet shrouded in mystery and misunderstanding. Barry Cunliffe's new chapter discusses the origins of the Celts and gives a fascinating overview of the current issues under debate among scholars in the field.
