Celtic Wales

New Edition

This pocket guidebook tells the story of the very earliest days of Wales, tracing the development of its Celtic culture and peoples from the Iron Age through to its arrival as an independent nation in medieval times. Written to be accessible and interesting to the nonspecialist, the book draws on archaeology, literature, and history to explore a wide range of aspect of Celtic life in ancient Wales, including Druidism, war, farming, and even drinking habits. This new edition brings the book’s scholarship fully up to date and makes it available to a new generation of readers.
