Review:

`his work has laid the basic foundation for the entire subject for the foreseeable future.'
Current Archaeology 175

`careful and perceptive scholarship of the highest order'
Current Archaeology 175

`The great collection of photographs and drawings, with an accompanying catalogue, is a major achievement in its own right, and a key reference work for the future.'
Current Archaeology 175

`this is a fine study by a scholar with a subtle and penetrating eye, full of wisdom and insights. It is a text of enduring value that justifies the author's assertion that Celtic art was the first fully expressive art in the British Isles. It is also superbly written, the style transcending
run of the mill archaeological writing'
Michael Ryan, Burlington Magazine

`All in all, this is a splendid, witty, elegant study, and a fine memorial to a scholar of great distinction.'
Michael Ryan, Burlington Magazine

`the essential starting-point for any serious study in the field ... wonderful'
Ruth and Vincent Megaw, Antiquity, 75, 2001
