Editorial Reviews


Excellent introduction to, and a timely round-up of, a complicated and fascinating subject.
The London Times Literary Supplement

Green had brought together a wealth of information on the diversity of roles played by animals in Iron Age Celtic society and the variation evident from region to region in Britain, on the Continent, and to some extent in Ireland as revealed by excavation, iconography, literature, and tradition...For those with a serious interest in Celtic prehistory, this is a book well worth having.
American Journal of Archaeology

The book is abundantly illustrated and displays valuable notes, a nice bibliography and an index; it is extremely instructive to understand the major role animals play in Celtic culture..
The Journal of Indo-European Studies, Summer 1996

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Andrew J. Brozyna on January 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a useful scholarly, yet approachable title to students of Iron Age agriculture as well as those interested in spiritual practice in pre-Roman Gaul and Britain. The discussion on domestic and hunted animals is the strength of the book, as the conclusions are drawn from archaeology. This title presents zooarchaeology in the UK as well as that from France. I was especially appreciative of this, as I do not speak (or read) French! Her book is an excellent compliment to the works of Peter J. Reynolds and the research at Butser Ancient Farm.

In describing a society that has left no written record of its ideas on animal myth and religion Greene relies on archaeology along with ethnography. Although Dark Age Irish legends can not be expected to be perfectly equivalent with the beliefs of Iron Age Britons and Gauls, they do provide a helpful guide.

All in all it's an excellent book.
