Summary

This work describes the La Tene period, when the inventive and receptive Celtic civilization was spread across Europe; the conflict of the Celts with the Roman world, and the consequent decline; and Celticism in its various survivals. The book ends with a sociological survey of the Celts; their society, their legal and political institutions, and their religion and mythology.
