    Apart from whence they came, gives a very thorough insight about who the celts were and where they are now. This is in fact a hard copy print of a TV documentary series, so maybe one might as well watch it. The landscapes are so beautiful that even after reading the book I, too would like to watch it :)

    This was a thoroughly fascinating read from cover to cover. In depth details of how the Celts first came into being, how their culture was formed, along with their beliefs, battle strategies, etc.

    If you needed another reason to remember why the Irish hate the British and why King Henry VIII was a thug you, my friend, will love this book too!
