The Celts (New Horizons)

First Masters of Europe

Christiane Eluère


A compact introduction to the history of the Celts and their civilisation


Lovers of gold, wine and war, the Celts have no voice because they 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.
