Editorial Reviews

Review

This fascinating book renews the perspective on Irish prehistory... The book is magnificently illustrated by pictures and sketches; it has a bibliographical and other indices; it is a detailed, wide-ranging and stimulating book for the researcher in Irish prehistory.
The Journal of Indo-European Studies

There is a vast difference between the view of Irish prehistory that was held half a century ago and the perspective that is presented to us now in this new work. The landscape was, as it were, just discernible in its present form a quarter of a century ago, when the last syntheses were published, but lacked detail. Now we have been supplied with a picture which enables us to find our way around. All students of Irish archaeology will need this book.
Irish Times

A stimulating book. The authors have examined Irish prehistory from the economic, sociological and artistic viewpoints and have shown the influences which brought about changes in the period. Their work is scholarly and informative, and it will enable the ordinary reader as well as the student to comprehend the vast amount of archaeological work that has been accomplished in Ireland over the last twenty years.
Irish Press

This detailed and wide-ranging work is the starting place for research into Irish Prehistory.
–Michael Ryan, National Museum of Ireland

Format: Paperback
After wading through a wealth of new age and neo-pagan type pseudo-history books, this book was received with extra pleasure. A difficult read because it does deal with ancient Ireland from an archeological perspective, but worthwhile for anyone that is interested in life before the Celts. No gushing about how wonderful life was or how we should try to get back to the way our ancestors lived, the authors keep speculation to a minimum and focus on what is actually known. As a practicing druid, let me assure you that enough junk has been written about Ireland with nothing to back it up except other Llewellyn books! Actual information is hard to come by, this book is the best I've read (OK, it's the only pre-Celtic I've read)

This book certainly increased my knowledge of Ireland and it's rich and ancient history. It is a text book and reads as such.

This is the worst example of writing in a "text book" that I have ever seen in print in the English language in my life. There are paragraphs in this thing that are a half of a page long, and sentence after sentence, the author uses the same sentence structure over, and over, and over again, page after page. That isn't "academic writing." That is pseudo-academic tripe. "Oh, it is intended to be an academic treatise," - I can just hear that dribble. There is nothing academic about ten compound-complex sentences in a row.
