Product Description

Review

"'Blood and Mistletoe is undoubtedly the most extensive and systematic account of its subject ever written.' (William Whyte, Times Literary Supplement) 'This is an ably researched and well-written book.' (Peter Ackroyd, The Times) 'Lucid, open-minded, encyclopaedic and yet still fascinating - almost perfect history if such a thing were possible.' (Terry Jones) 'This book is a tour de force: surely the definitive work on our perception of the Druids.' (David V. Barrett, The Independent) 'Hutton takes a refreshingly even-handed view.' (Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph) 'Written with great verve, this is a sparkling account of how the Druids were reinvented over the last four centuries.' (Jeremy Black, BBC History Magazine) 'my only regret is that although it extends to a quarter of a million words, it is not a few score thousand longer.' (Tom Shippey, London Review of Books) 'should be a copy of this important, occasionally sensational and highly entertaining book in every Welsh library... Hutton's scholarship is not only breathtakingly thorough but also ruthlessly critical.' (Timothy Mowl, Times Higher Education Supplement)"
