    DescriptionIn this classic ethnological study, a noted French scholar, perhaps the foremost authority of his day on the Celts, traces the origins, history and influence of this far-flung group of Indo-European peoples. Beginning with the earliest archaeological and linguistic evidence, he tracks the migration of Celtic peoples into Europe and as far west as the British Isles. Drawing on years of research and study, Professor Hubert offers exceptionally thorough treatment of Celtic languages and what their relationship to Indo-European, Germanic, Italic, and other language families can tell us about the origins and migrations of the Celts; he also provides expert, detailed discussions of archaeological evidence from the La Tene and other cultures in the form of weapons, armor, pottery, and decorative ornament. Finally, he presents extensive, meticulously researched chapters on the expansion of the Celts in the British Isles and on the Continent during the Bronze Age and the Hallstatt Period. Enhanced with more than 140 line illustrations, 4 halftones, and 12 maps, this work is indispensable for serious students of Celtic or European history, but it will also be welcomed by any reader interested in this extraordinary group of peoples and the profound influence Celts exerted on Western culture.
