Synopsis

Step into the Celtic World by Fiona MacDonald

This title provides 15 step-by-step projects that enable you to experience the past and how the ancients lived by making models, playing games and creating Celtic art and accessories. Fact boxes provide extra insights and highlight links with the present. This work is packed with over 200 colour photographs. Illustrations include cross-sections, historical maps and a pictorial timeline. This book is ideal for home or school use for 8 to 12-year-olds. Step back to a time more than two thousand years ago, when the warlike Celts dominated northern and central Europe. Marvel at their bravery and nobility in battle and discover why they were both hated and admired by the Greeks and Romans. Find out fascinating facts about the many different Celtic people - the reason for their migration, their mysticism and beliefs, and how they crafted exquisite metalwork. There is a variety of practical projects that helps you bring the past alive - build a roundhouse fit for a Gallic chieftain, make a Welsh harp and create a classic Celtic border.
