Review:

Readable and well-researched... a useful guide... -- - Count Nikolai Tolstoy * Times Higher Education Supplement * Finally, a book that separates fact from mythology, telling us what we can and cannot know about the ancient Druids. This remarkable book by a leading historian of the Celts offers much for the academician as well as the general reader. Fascinating reading! -- Joseph A. King, author of Ireland to North America

Book Description Robinson, 2002. 2-82. Condition: New. The Druids have been perceived, and misunderstood, in many different ways ¿ from the barbaric priests making human sacrifices the Romans described, to ancient exponents of 'New Age' philosophy. Peter Beresford Ellis sifts through archaeological, etymological and Greek and Roman written evidence to provide a fully researched account of the Druids, revealing them as the intellectual caste ¿ the doctors, lawyers, ambassadors and advisors ¿ of ancient Celtic society.
