Though the Romans portrayed the Celts as barbarians, archaeological inquiry has revealed that the period before the Roman conquest in Celtic Europe was one of great technological, social, and economic progress. This book is a well-illustrated overview of the Celtic world at a time of rapid advancement that produced a remarkable level of cultural unity in a vast region stretching from the Danube to the Atlantic coasts.
