Overview
-

The Celts dominated Ireland from their arrival around 700BCE to the early fifth century, taking the country from the bronze age to the iron age. Some Celtic tribes lived peacefully alongside the native Irish while others took what they wanted by force. Eventually though, they more or less became one people and though some historians don’t like the use of the word ‘Celtic’, it’s as good a word as any to describe the Irish people of the time.

Irish Celts took on a flavor of their own – they were different in lots of ways to the other Celtic tribes living in Europe and even across the Irish Sea in Britain. Even after Saint Patrick arrived on Irish soil, many pagan Celtic practices stayed the same for many centuries and still now, Ireland considers itself a Celtic country.

Come now on a journey to discover what these ‘barbarians’ were really like – what they believed in, how they lived and died and whether they were as DEADLY! as we have been told.

Accessible, fun (you might even say anarchic!) and crammed to the rafters with cartoons and wacky illustrations, this book is as deadly as Irish history gets!
