The author here addresses not only contexts of Celtic archaeological finds but questions about what the relationship between various Celtic cultures and the Classical world was. The approach in this area is well thought out, extensively detailed, and clearly communicated.
On the negative side, the author really would have done better to discuss the difficulties in connecting material to linguistic culture. "Pots aren't people" as one group can immitate the physical crafts of another without changing language. This is well known when looking at Native American archaeology and it is a problem that any book trying to address a linguistic group through archaeology needs to take seriously. While there is general agreement that the La Tene and Hallstatt cultures were probably synonymous with Celtic language groups, this is not entirely beyond question. This becomes more serious when looking at the spread of the Catacomb Culture and whether this indicated a migration or simply a spread of a new burial style across pre-existing ethnic and linguistic groups. A reader wthout any archaeoogical background may not appreciate these issues and the simple flag on the author's part that the interpretation is disputed may be insufficient.
On the whole, I think that despite the issues in mapping linguistic to material culture, this is a book that every student of Celtic studies and such should read. Highly recommended.
an informal debate within UK as to whether Britain was civilized only after the arrival of the Romans. Here, this
book about the Celts--a pan European people who shared customs and trade--gives the reader a better idea
that Britain wasn't just civilized after the Romans came. While Celts were also warlike, they made beautiful
items and had their own culture, customs and agriculture.
A few of my classmates, however, thought that the way the chapters are ordered was a bit haphazardly. I have to agree that the author does skip back and forth through the chronology of what is written, but that didn't bother me at all.
I would recommend this book to any one who'd like to get to know more about the early Celtic culture, how that culture came to be and how it was swallowed up by the Roman Empire.
