The Greek philosopher Posidonius travels to Gaul, and observes the Celtic world Freeman pieces together what is left of Posidonius s journal Freeman also uses other ancient sources, and various archaeological discoveries, to explain ancient Celtic society.
Tribal customs, religious practices, social hierarchy, art work, weapons, and of course their fierce warrior culture, are explained in the book.
I have always enjoyed reading about the ancient Greek and Roman world Freeman s book gives us a great insight, into the Celtic society of the same time period This book also has a good flow, and is fun to read.
This book, as I recall, provides a fascinating historical look at the Celtic Druids I bought it early in my research and foolishly loaned it out to a clergy associate Needless to say the book did not come back so I ordered a second copy It is that relevant to my research and my home library.
Well written, to the information factually accurate as far as the investigation I have been doing into the subject matter, I think if you are interested in either Philosophy, I am one or The Druids, I am a follower of that faith you will find this an easy jump in to the subject, for a beginner, or a refreshing new look as an experienced researcher into the subject matter I recommend this book with full marks.
