Life of the Ancient Celts

Life of the Ancient Celts

Hazel Richardson

  • 895

The Celts were a legendary people that ruled the extensive region stretching in all directions from present-day Austria. Known as ferocious warriors, the Celts were also skilled forgers of iron. The discovery of salt also allowed the Celts to become wealthy through trade with the rest of Europe until their eventual ruin by Roman conquerors. Most 18th-century immigrants to America are descended from the Celts, and will learn a lot about their history in this colorful and easy-to read book. (32pp. color illus. Crabtree, 2005.)
