Description

In A Pocket Guide: Celtic Wales, Miranda Green and Ray Howell provide a wide-ranging and accessible introduction to a rich and complex phase of Wales’s past as they examine the archaeological and historical evidence for settlement in Wales from about 700 B.C. to AD 1000, a period which has long been labeled as “Celtic.” This well-illustrated book puts Celtic Wales in its European context and contributes to current debates on Celticity and ethnic identity. It also examines the unity and diversity of Celtic Wales from Iron Age settlement and Roman occupation through the early Christian and medieval periods, exploring topics such as tribal identity, economy and trade, art and religion, the interaction between Celtic and Roman Wales, and early medieval myths.
