📙 The Celts: The Construction of a Myth by Malcolm Chapman — free download


The Celts are commonly considered to be one of the great peoples of Europe, with continuous racial, cultural and linguistic genealogy from the Iron Age to the modern-day "Celtic fringe". This book shows, in contrast, that the Celts, as they have been known and understood over two thousand years, are simply the "other" of the dominant cultural and political traditions of Europe. It is this continuous "otherness" which lends them apparent continuity and substance. Modern social anthropology, Celtic studies, literary and historical evidence, and the author's own fieldwork in Brittany and Scotland, are brought together in demonstration of this.
