The latest in the much-loved Elements Encyclopedia series, The Element Encyclopedia of Celts explores the history, culture and mythology of these great peoples and their way of life, including their heroic gods and goddesses, incredible myths and legends and their everyday lives through their language, customs and society. Encompassing their Iron Age beginnings, European colonisation, the various strands of 'Celticness' (race, politics and culture), as well as the Celtic Tiger of today, this encyclopedia gets to the very heart of Celtic origin and meaning, as well as delving into the cultural and mythical background that draws so many to claim their Celtic roots today.
