This volume invites readers to delve into the origins and development of ancient Celtic culture and immerse themselves in their historical development, cultural horizons, societal structure, and much more. The text traces the birth of the Celts back to the Era of the Celtic Princes, which is believed to have begun around the mid-eighth century, B.C. Readers are taken on a journey of discovery that chronicles the era of migrations in the third and forth centuries B.C. followed by several millennia which saw the interaction between Celtic and non-Celtic-speaking people that would bring about the diversification of the Celtic peoples. Chapters devoted to warriors and farmers, the Celts of Iberia, and the Celts of Britain and Ireland explore the social structures of these evolving civiliations and details of their daily lives. Hundreds of photographs, aerial views, three-dimensional reconstructions, and details of ancient artifacts supplement the authoritative text.
