The Historical Atlas of the Celtic World

by John Haywood
£12.95   paperback  Thames & Hudson Ltd (2009)

The Historical Atlas of the Celtic World by John Haywood In a series of stunning full-colour maps, covering 3,000 years and spanning the whole of Europe, The Historical Atlas of the Celtic World charts the dramatic history of the Celts from their Bronze Age origins to the present-day diaspora.
 
No other book presents the story of the Celts so graphically and accessibly. Ranging over archaeology and military, cultural, literary and political history, this is a superb volume for home reference and an ideal introduction to one of Europe’s most inventive and influential people.
 
Taking into account academic controversies over the historical identity of the Celts and the latest research, the atlas examines the Continental Celts, the Atlantic Celts (Britain and Ireland) and the Celtic identity in the modern world.
 
Who were the Celts?
• The Celtic identity – from their languages to Druids, sanctuaries, temples, hillforts and brochs
 
The earliest Celts
• their origins in the Bronze Age and their remarkable migrations across Europe in the Iron Age
 
The Continental Celts
• from the Hallstatt and La Tène cultures to the Celts of France, Spain, Italy and Anatolia, and their fate under Roman rule
 
The Celts of Britain and Ireland
 • from Roman times and King Arthur to the rise of Gaelic Ireland, the Welsh princedoms and the making of Scotland
 
The Celts today
• the spread of Celts to all corners of the globe, from North America to Patagonia, South Africa and Australia, and the Celtic Revival
 
Each map is accompanied by an authoritative text and supporting illustrations.
