Book summary

By T.G.E. Powell, edited by Stuart Piggott, Revised edition, 1980, published by Thames & Hudson. With 149 illustrations, 12 in colour. Publisher's statement: "Who were the Celts? To what extent have they influenced the composition of the modern nations of Western Europe, and of Britain and Ireland in particluar? In his search for their identity the author probes the social, religious and cultural attitudes of this far-flung people by marshalling the evidence that does exist--historical, archaeological, and linguistic. The late Professor Powell's book has been widely acclaimed as a major pioneering study since its first publication. Professor Stuart Piggott, who supervised the preparation of the revised edition, says in his Preface that so sound was the author's scholarship that it was possible to leave the text virtually intact. However, many additional illustrations have been selected including eight pages of colour plates." [via]
