¶ The first survey of religious beliefs in the British Isles from the Old Stone Age to the coming of Christianity, one of the least familiar but most extensive periods in Britain's history. The author investigates evidence for Celtic and Romano-Britain paganism: from burial sites, cairns, megaliths, and causeways to carvings, figurines, jewellery, weapons, votive objects, literary texts and folklore.
