A colourful and warlike people, constantly on the move, the Celts spread from Central Europe to Ireland, bringing with them their beliefs and customs, new crafts and skills, tools and weapons of iron and a Celtic language. Here we explore their home life, work, political structures and leisure. Illustrated with photographs of Celtic artefacts, maps, and superb, archaelogically-informed reconstruction drawings of Celtic life.
