This is a well written explanation of recent developments in archeology, linguistics and physical anthropology directed at determining the origins and history of the peoples know labeled as Celts. It has more detail than a casual reader is likely to assimilate, but would be an important addition to the library of anyone with an extensive interest in the subject. ( )

From prehistory to the present day, an unrivaled look deep into the contentious origins of the Celts

Blood of the Celts brings together genetic, archaeological, and linguistic evidence to address the often-debated question: who were the Celts? What peoples or cultural identities should that term describe? And did they in fact inhabit the British Isles before the Romans arrived? Author Jean Manco challenges existing accounts of the origins of the Celts, providing a new analysis that draws on the latest discoveries as well as ancient history.

In a novel approach, the book opens with a discussion of early medieval Irish and British texts, allowing the Celts to speak in their own words and voices. It then traces their story back in time into prehistory to their deepest origins and their ancestors, before bringing the narrative forward to the present day. Each chapter also has a useful summary in bullet points to aid the reader and highlight the key facts in the story. 90 illustrations, including 41 maps
