Take a pilgrimage through Celtic Britain to sites once held sacred. The Celts' animistic religion deified natural forces, and these photographs reveal the magnificence of the yews, fens, and lakes where they worshipped. Some pictures catch the beauty of extended landscapes; others feature sacred spa waters, lush but stunted trees, and a giant figure carved into the earth. The text moves chronologically from "Pagan Celts" through "Romano-Celtic Britain" into the "Age of Saints", and finally to the "Continuity and Revival" of Celtic culture. A map and gazetteer of sites gives an overview of Celtic influence and settlement.
