Abstract:

"The National Museum of Ireland contains some of the most important Celtic and pre-Celtic artefacts in the world. This major survey of the highlights of the museum's collection comprises texts summarising the different periods and extended captions describing each artefact under discussion. In all, just over 200 artefacts are listed and discussed. All are important; about 60 are of world importance. These include such treasures as the Broighter Hoard, the Ardagh Chalice, the Tara Brooch and the Cross of Cong. The artefacts are dated in time from 4000 B.C. to 1500 A.D., culminating in ecclesiastical treasures from the late Medieval period. This is the most comprehensive and authoritative work ever produced on the National Museum of Ireland's antiquities collection and will establish itself as a standard book for many years to come."-- Amazon.
