Product Description

About the Author

This book comprises the first major exhibition of Early Celtic Art from its origins and beginnings to its aftermath, and was assembled by Stuart Piggott who taught later European prehistory to Honors students in Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh, where he held the Abercromy Chair. He retired from the Chair in 1977, and in 1983 he received the gold medal of the Society of Antiquaries of London, as well as the Grahame Clark medal of the British Academy in 1992. Through his knowledge of the subject, he has made accessible an obscure but fascinating period of European culture.

Useful compilation 8 Jan. 2009
By Christopher R. Travers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This work details around 250 archaeological finds relating to Celtic art, including coins. Each find is described in detail, a year and place of discovery is noted, and additional citations are given.

Many though not nearly all of the finds are illustrated, making the work supremely useful as a place to begin research on Celtic art. However, the lack of detail makes it difficult to draw any real conclusions from the work itself.

On the whole, I think that this is a work which provides useful information and illustrations to anyone interested in Celtic art. Therefore I would recommend it widely even given the limited scope of the work.
