CELTIC WARRIORS - This book examines the weapons and battle tactics of the Celtic tribes of Britain and Europe from the fifth to the first century BC using both documtary and archaeological evidence. The writings of several classical authors give valuable information about the impact of the 'barbarian tribes' on the Roman world, telling us about the stature of the warriors, their skills in chariotry and their bombastic manner, as well as offering vivid accounts of combats between champions. The evidence of archaeology, both from elaborate burials and from chance finds, shows the high standard of craftsmanship of Celtic arms. With both line drawings and photograpphs, the book illustrates the main categories of weapons - shields, swords, spears and helmets - as well as some of the more unusual equipment such as mail.
