In this book—published in the United Kingdom as The Ancient Paths—the author of the Duff Cooper and Ondaatje Prize winner The Discovery of France, Graham Robb here uncovers evidence of one of the world's great civilizations. Celtic society once stretched from the Black Sea to the Scottish Highlands, and produced some of the most advanced artistic and scientific achievements of the Iron Age, until it was crushed under the "civilizing influence" of the Roman Empire. Tracing ancient routes and towns, Robb finds the precise astronomical and mathematical world mapped out by the Celts, and overturns much of what we think we know about early European history.
