Life in Celtic Times (Dover History Coloring
Feared in battle by their opponents, adept at farming and cattle raising, the Celts were a remarkable people whose height, muscularity, and fair complexion set them apart from their Roman contemporaries. Migrating westward from European lands they had occupied during the sixth and fifth centuries B.C., they eventually settled in the British Isles.Artist A. G. Smith has carefully rendered over 40 finely detailed illustrations depicting the daily life and culture of ancient Celtic people. Spanning some fourteen centuries (700 B.C. to A. D. 700), the scenes depict a smelting furnace in the Hallstatt culture (Switzerland), an Iron-Age village of thatched houses, fishermen using coracles (small, round boats), a decorative page from the Book of Kells, a Scottish Broch (fortress tower), Glastonbury fishermen, farmers harvesting grain, Celtic warriors on horseback, St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland, and scenes of religious rites, Celtic exploration, costumes, weapons, armor, much more.An informative introduction and detailed, fact-filled captions complement this collection of superb drawings that will not only delight coloring book fans of all ages but will serve equally well as an excellent, abbreviated pictorial history of the ancient Celts.

Now, in a captivating account of how her life led her to these illuminating and crucial ideas, she shows us how forests can not only heal us but save the planet.When Diana Beresford-Kroeger--whose father was a member of the Anglo-Irish aristocracy and whose mother was an O'Donoghue, one of the stronghold families who carried on the ancient Celtic traditions--was orphaned as a child, she could have been sent to the Magdalene Laundries. Instead, the O'Donoghue elders, most of them scholars and freehold farmers in the Lisheens valley in County Cork, took her under their wing. Diana became the last ward under the Brehon Law. Over the course of three summers, she was taught the ways of the Celtic triad of mind, body and soul. This included the philosophy of healing, the laws of the trees, Brehon wisdom and the Ogham alphabet, all of it rooted in a vision of nature that saw trees and forests as fundamental to human survival and spirituality. Already a precociously gifted scholar, Diana found that her grounding in the ancient ways led her to fresh scientific concepts. Out of that h...
