About this title

Synopsis:

When Graham Robb made plans to cycle the legendary Via Heraklea, he had no idea that the line he plotted - stretching from the south-western tip of the Iberian Peninsula, across the Pyrenees and towards the Alps - would change the way he saw a civilisation. It was an ancient path that took him deep into the world of the Celts: their gods, their art, and, most of all, their sophisticated knowledge of science. Gradually, a lost map revealed itself, of an empire constructed with precision and beauty across vast tracts of Europe. Oriented according to the movements of the Celtic sun god, the map had been forgotten for almost two millennia. Its implications were astonishing.

About the Author:

Graham Robb was born in Manchester in 1958 and is a former fellow of Exeter College, Oxford. He is the author of six other books including Victor Hugo (winner of the Royal Society of Literature Heinemann Award and the Whitbread Biography Award), Rimbaud (shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize), The Discovery of France (winner of both the Duff Cooper and Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prizes) and the Sunday Times top ten bestseller, Parisians. He lives in Cumbria.
