Product description

When the Celts First arrived in Ireland around 250 BC, the island had already been inhabited for over 7,000 years. These pre-Celtic peoples have left no written records: they are literally pre-historic. But they have left extensive archaeological evidence, of which Newgrange is the most celebrated example. Who were these people, and how did they live? What sort of houses did they build? How did they cultivate the land? What sort of social and economic systems did they have? Using archaeological evidence, Laurence Flanagan pieces together the answers to these and many other questions about daily life in pre-Celtic Ireland.
