Explore the story of the Celts: their religions, technologies, arts, and societies. Plus, learn not only about the people themselves, but also about the archaeologists who've discovered their secrets after years of work. National Geographic's extensive photographic and map archives add richness to this new series that trasports readers to significant archaeological sites and brings ancient civilizations to life. 64 pages, hardcover. Ages 10 & up.
The distinctive languages, art, and mythologies of the ancient Celts give archaeologists with an enduring quest in Northern Europe. The Celts rarely used their written language, passing along beliefs, knowledge, and wisdom through oral traditions. Artifact-rich burial grounds, like the megalithic tombs at Newgrange, Ireland, inscribed stones, and stone circles like Stonehenge, all yield clues to their mysterious ways.
