    1 thought on “Celts: art and identity”

    1. Recommandé pour tous les amoureux de l'art celte mais aussi antique. Différentes facettes mises en valeur, textes fouillés, riches perspectives.

    2. One of the most enlightening, wonderfully written and beautifully photographed books I have ever owned. The exhibit at the British Museum must be the most comprehensive ever presented on Celtic life. Although we can't see the exhibit in person it is delightful way to experience with the book. The details and explanations of the pieces are extraordinary. Heavy stock photo pages exquisitely presented to the reader.

    3. Beautifully illustrated and easy to read. Love this book - great for just perusing or for research, or both! Wonderful dig into an ephemeral history of a multi-faceted and misunderstood culture that covered more the Europe than most people think.

    4. A wonderful overview of Celtic history; great writing on current historical understanding -- with pictures too! A good purchase for art and history lovers, particularly if you are wondering about who your ancestors were before they were British, Scottish, or Irish. Buy it for the pictures, but don't forget to read the text.

    5. well done companion work, however it does not catalogue (as some may hope) the artefacts curated for the exhibitions.

    6. Gorgeous photos and very readable text. The latest in research on who exactly we mean when we talk about "the Celts." I look forward to seeing the exhibit in Edinburgh.
