This book provides a fascinating and unique history of the Britons from the late Iron Age to the late Middle Ages. It draws on both archaeological and written evidence to trace the development of the distinct culture of the Britons that survived nearly four centuries of Roman rule and has been revived and celebrated by generations ever since.
The book also discusses the revivals of interest in British culture and myth over the centuries, from Renaissance antiquarians to modern day Druids.
