The art of the pagan early Christian Celts (500BC - AD800) was central to their identity. Its significance was all-pervasive, trancending mere ornamentation with a system of symbols that made clear statements about status, power, and gender, about war and the supernatural. In the absence of contemporary written records, this thought-provoking study adopts other means to crack the code of Celtic art. Locating it clearly in its archaeological context, Miranda Green works towards an understanding of its place within Celtic society. The code may be too complex to crack in its entirety, but this book enhances as none has done before our understanding of the art, and of the world which it reflects.
