There is a bad trend in modern books to treat "The Celts" as some sort of homogeneous group Celts book people, and as a means to promote pan-Celticism. I don't really have a problem with this when it is clearly stated (as Kontretiev's book "The Apple Branch" does), but when this is not clearly stated, it leads to a number of bad by: 2.

book about the Celts--a pan European people who shared customs and trade--gives the reader a better idea that Britain wasn't just civilized after the Romans came.

The first book you’ve recommended, Barry Cunliffe’s The Celts: A Very Short Introduction, is a very brief introductory text for what seems to be a very broad topic. How does he bring it all together.

The thing about Barry Cunliffe is that he’s written so many books on the Celts, and he’s clearly sweated a lot over these books. The Celts were a collection of tribes with origins in central Europe that shared a similar language, religious beliefs, traditions and culture.

The Ancient Celts by Barry Cunliffe is a great start. Cunliffe is arguably the premier popular scholar on the Celtic speaking peoples of Europe; He won't steer you wrong. Also worth looking into after reading The Ancient Celts is Celtic From The W.

For the Celts themselves, the book presents broad overviews of different aspects of Celtic society, culture, art and so on. This is necessarily brief and focuses on those Celtic peoples who are amply attested to. For those others who dwelt more on the fringes of Celtic territory, Cunliffe is rightly more cautious in the few conclusions he draws5/5(5).
