From the Back Cover:

The Celts have been described as the 'founders of modern Europe'. This book shows how their views on, for example, consultative democracy, environmental issues and women's rights are echoed in contemporary policies, and how they are continuing to shape our political and religious ideas.

The Druids were the guardians of the Celtic tradition. They cultivated the art of memory to ensure that the stories were passed on to the following generation. All our public holidays correspond with Druidic celebrations and their mythology underlies countless superstitions, customs and folk festivals. Ward Rutherford re-examines Druidism, incorporating new and extensive research into their arcane wisdom. He investigates the origins and significance of the Arthurian myths to gain a more profound understanding of the Celtic nation and the influence of their ideas on the present day.

"A well-researched and readable account of the survival of various aspects of the culture which once dominated much of Europe."
IRISH PRESS

Synopsis:
