As our Editor in Chief has previously observed (Reviews, CA 242), the Celts are out of fashion. Simon Young’s book is an impassioned response to the ‘Celt-deniers’, insisting the Celtic civilisation is as important as that of the Greeks and Romans.

The word ‘Celt’ means different things to different people: archaeologists, linguists, art historians, classicists, neo-pagans, Gaelic speakers and even Cornish nationalists all have different responses. Young addresses this divisiveness, as well as the relatively recent archaeological attitude that the Celts never existed. For Young, there are 2,000 years of
history to prove the existence of a vibrant and influential culture; albeit one in terminal decline by the dawn of the Middle Ages.

The book is written in an accessible, conversational style. Divided into three parts, the ancient Celts and their pre-Roman dominance are closely examined, as is the explosion of Christianity; the final third of the book is devoted to analysis of Celtic legend and an in-depth discussion of King Arthur, provocatively labeled a ‘genocidal warlord’. Whether you believe the Celts existed or not, this is an authoritative and informative read.
