Summary
Much that is known of the Celts, apart from their weapons and ornaments, has come to us from their enemies, the Romans. Yet we can assemble a portrait of a cultured people. These 'barbarians' were driven to the edges of Europe, yet shone out once more in Celtic Christianity.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Lovers of gold, wine and war, the Celts have no voice because they have left no written records. Much of what we know of them comes from their enemies the Romans, who finally crushed them, and from the weapons and ornaments they buried with their dead. From these traces we can now resurrect a sophisticated people who dominated Europe for 500 years. These highly cultured "barbarians", with their exquisite jewellery and metalwork, were eventually driven to the edges of the known world - yet were destined to shine out once more in the art of Celtic Christianity.
