I really admire Amanda's scholarly texts. Just one point however - the stone recovered at the Romano British archaeological dig at Castleford did not have 3 Nymphi images, it has only 2. I know because I dug it up! Doesn't fit the triad theory.

After taking the trouble to write a long, rambling introduction explaining where the Celts possibly originated, once in the main text the author uses archaeological and architectural jargon without bothering to explain its meaning. There is no glossary, so have a dictionary handy when you read this book. Other authors are discussed with the assumption that you are familiar with their work, so it reads like a text book to accompany an explanatory course. The photos are disappointingly all in monochrome and without any indication of the size of the objects shown. The only colour picture is the front cover which is without caption - you have to plough through the text to find out what it is. A dreadful waste of a fascinating subject.

I really admire Amanda's scholarly texts. Just one point however - the stone recovered at the Romano British archaeological dig at Castleford did not have 3 Nymphi images, it has only 2. I know because I dug it up! Doesn't fit the triad theory.
