Who were the Celts, and where did they come from? This new account of a most captivating culture--the official companion to a major international TV show-delves into their origins, following their movements into the traditionally accepted Celtic lands of Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, Brittany, and Galicia. Each fascinating chapter, illustrated with color photographs and maps, is based upon one program in the six-part series. From prehistoric Europe to near-obliteration to the dawn of a new self-assertion, a centuries-long story unfolds: the Celtic heyday with its bards and druids; the defeats by the Roman forces; the adoption of Christianity and the special nature of the Celtic church; and the modern era of emigration, which spread Celtic language, art, and music throughout the world.
