Riassunto: Peter Berresford Ellis, the pre-eminent Celtic scholar, examines the first millennium of Celtic history - up to the time of Christ. The Celts were the first European people north of the Alps to emerge into recorded history. Their civilisation dominated the ancient world - from Ireland in the west to Turkey in the east, from Belgium in the north, south to Spain and Italy, where they sacked Rome itself in 390 BC. This was the 'Celtic Empire', but without an emperor or central government, made up instead of independent tribes who moved across Europe imposing their distinctive culture and social values on other peoples. In a new paperback edition of this lucid and expert account, Peter Berresford Ellis accords the Celts their proper place in the history of ancient Europe.
L'autore: Peter Berresford Ellis is one of the foremost living authorities on the Celts and the author of many books on the subject, including Celt and Roman, Celt and Greek, Celt and Saxon, Dictionary of Celtic Mythology, Celtic Dawn, The Ancient World of the Celts and Celtic Women. In 1989 he received an Irish Post award in recognition of his work on Celtic history.
