The Celts by Alice Roberts

TV tie-in to a major BBC series, using the latest technology to uncover Celtic treasures and shape a new story of this civilization and its global legacy today.

The Celts are one of the world’s most mysterious ancient people.  In this compelling account, Alice Roberts takes us on a journey across Europe, uncovering the truth about this enigmatic tribe: their origins, their treasure and their enduring legacy today. What emerges is not a wild people, but a highly sophisticated tribal culture that influenced the ancient world – and even Rome.

It is the story of a multicultural civilization, linked by a common language.

It is the story of how ideas travelled in prehistory, how technology and art spread across the continent.

It is the story of a five-hundred year fight between two civilizations that came to define the world we live in today.

It is the story of a culture that changed Europe forever.

Peer & Press Reviews

Roberts’s lightness of touch is joyous, and celebratory.


The Celts are here and all around us, even today.  The Romans might have tried to snuff them out, but the flames were not wholly extinguished.  Alice’s book will make them even easier to find.  Informed, impeccably researched and written.

Neil Oliver

Clear-spoken and enthusiastic.
