Solid book, but a little light on hard information,
By A Customer
This review is from: Exploring the World of the Celts (Hardcover)
Simon James' overview of the Celtic Iron Age is a good read, and a solid 'first book' to read about the Celts. Better than Cunliffe's Ancient Celts, but I would always say that Collis' European Iron Age is the best overview out there.
However, James' book is an easy read and has lots of illustrations. Just don't make this the only book you ever read on the Celts, because you'll only get part of the story!
As an aside, James' book on the Atlantic Celts is another great title, and far surpasses this earlier effort.
