Synopsis

The Celts and All That by Alan Burnett

The Celts and All That is a book bursting with blood-curdling battles and dead important details about the ancient Celts. Everything you need to know about human sacrifice and headhunting is all here - plus a recipe for making your own Celtic bog butter! Packed with incredible illustrations of everything from iron-age jewellery to timber fortresses, this is an essential guide to a brilliant bunch of ancient Europeans who shaped our world. The Celts had roads, technology and inventions long before the Romans turned up - but did they also run around naked, as the Romans claimed? You'll find an intriguing answer to that and many other crucial questions inside. Plus you'll learn to tell the difference between Celtic myths and historical facts - but you'll also love the magical legends of Celtic heroes and villains, warrior princesses and monster slaying wizards.

Reviews

Packed with humor - I recommend the whole lot! --The School Librarian

About the Author

Alan Burnett

Allan Burnett writes books for children and adults including the acclaimed And All That series of blood-spattered historical biographies; World War 2: Scottish Tales of Adventure based on Allan's first-hand interviews; and Invented In Scotland. He contributes to a number of newspapers and magazines, having worked as a writer, features commissioning editor and deputy foreign editor at The Herald and Sunday Herald group.

Allan was born and brought up in the Western Isles, and educated at the University of Edinburgh. By night working as a caped ghost-tour guide, by day he earned a distinction for his postgraduate thesis on constitutional history and literature. These days he gets dressed up as a rogue medieval courtier or imprisoned U-Boat officer, among other guises, to tell Scottish history tales and create literacy projects with heritage sites and schools. He lives in Glasgow with his wife and daughter.
