Summary and Info
The Celtic-speaking Britons who inhabited England, Wales, and part of Scotland in the five hundred years before the birth of Christ left no written history. However, archaeology has revealed some of their artistic achievements, and every year more objects are unearthed. Jewelry, weapons, armor, and the metal fittings of chariots and harnesses are magnificently decorated with fascinating and powerful abstract designs. In this fully revised and updated edition of his highly praised study, Stead examines the Celtic craftsmen's techniques and describes a number of their surviving masterpieces, such as the Battersea shield and the Aylesford bucket.
