In the First Millennium BC, the tribes known as the Celts were the
dominant force on the continent of Europe. In fringe regions like
Ireland, the Celtic people continued to flourish long into the
Christian Age. These were warriors with a unique way of life, as this
fascinating episode reveals. Dark religious rituals and a love of
bloody fighting were a vital part of their life, and classical
writers condemned what they saw as a barbarian lifestyle. But we now
know that Celtic culture was rich and sophisticated. Buried Celtic
treasures have revealed their achievement in crafts such as jewelry,
while the great legends of Irish literature confirm that epic
storytelling was also part of the life of this still-mysterious
ancient people.
