Abstract:

This concise 3,000-year history of the Celts is packed with facts never before assembled together in a single volume. Much of this information cannot be found even in previous books written about the Celts. While of obvious interest to the 40 million Americans of Irish ancestry, it will also fascinate many who identify with the Scottish, the Welsh and the English. Britain was once a Celtic island and, along with Scotland and Wales, is still part Celtic. With its succinct style and a minimum of jargon, this work is intended to appeal to a general readership. Its original presentation and the gems it contains make it a timeless reference work, different from any other book ever published on the Celts. - from the backcover.
