The Druids by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling and highly reliable study of the Druids, respected Celtic scholar Peter Berresford Ellis sifts through the historical evidence and, with reference to the latest archaeological and etymological findings, gives the first authentic account of who the mysterious Druids were and what role they played in Celtic society." "The Druids emerge as the intellectual caste of ancient Celtic society. They were the doctors, the lawyers, the ambassadors, the advisers to kings. They also had a religious function. Ellis describes the special Druidic training, their philosophy, their belief in auguries, and their intriguing origins. He also shows that the current "New Age" image of the Druids as benevolent wizards comes from a woefully inadequate interpretation of the facts."--Jacket

41 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celtic women : women in Celtic society and literature by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of Ellis's engaging study show that Celtic society undoubtedly maintained an order in which women were harmoniously balanced in relation to men. Beside the repressive male dominance of classic Mediterranean society, the position of women in Celtic myth, law, and early history seems to have constituted an ideal. Celtic women could govern; took prominent - sometimes the highest - roles in political, religious, and artistic life; could own property; could divorce; and were even expected to fight alongside men in battles. It was not until the Celts' encounter and conflict with the alien values of the Roman and Germanic cultures and the arrival of Western Christianity that the rights of women began to erode

Celt and Roman : the Celts of Italy by Peter Berresford Ellis( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first popular account of the Celts of Italy and the land known as Cisalpine Gaul. In 390 BC a Celtic army captured Rome and occupied it for seven months until the Roman Senate paid them off. For the next fifty years, Celtic armies remained nearby; and for two centuries the Celts of Italy resisted Rome with a stubborn defiance, often annihilating entire consular armies sent against them. Rome could not claim to be master of the Po Valley Celts until 191 BC

25 editions published between 1975 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cromwell's ruthless colonisation of Ireland is a story of cruelty and terror which still reverberates after more than three hundred years. Peter Berresford Ellis's acclaimed account of the period chillingly recreates 'the curse of Cromwell' the executions and mass transportations, the confiscation of lands and the banishment of Irish landowners 'to Hell or Connaught'. -- Publisher description
