16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 20 Jan. 2004
When I first saw this book, my reaction was that such a small book certainly couldn't contain any useful information whatsoever. The book is a mere 5" by 5" by 76 pages (if I counted correctly).
However, after opening it up, I found that it is absolutely masterful in what it does. Most pages contain a picture of a symbol, and the accompanying text explains the significance that the Celtic peoples assigned to a specific symbol. Among the symbols covered are the triple head, the ram, the stag, heads and head hunting, and much more. As an introduction to Celtic symbols, this book probably has no peer.

Excellent Photographs of Ancient Artifacts of the Celts 3 May 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
First I rated the book an 8 since it gives only brief accounts of the artifacts. Pictorally, it is easily rated as a 10. It's a mini-book measuring only about 5" x 5" and every couple of pages begins with a new artifact or item. Well done, again with excellent photographs. This is not an in-depth study of the Celts, but an excellent overview for those with a beginning interest in what their culture was composed of.

Nice, If You need a Coffee Table Book; albeit a tiny one 21 Sept. 2001
By M. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is...well...tiny! Don't let the designation "Hardcover" fool you, it is miniscule. While the pictures are nice enough, there is no real depth to the information given. Only one page (about 3" x 4") per picture, so what can you expect. Also, for many of the pictures, the sources are either not given, or incorrect as I found out by looking the same pictures up in more extensive works. This book is fine if you want a very tiny coffee table book, but don't expect much in the way of scholarly, historical enlightenment from it.

Good but short 4 Oct. 2007
By J. Mackey - Published on Amazon.com
It was great, and just as described. I was hoping for something a little more detailed but that was my misconception. Great coffee table book!
