Thanks Maurice,

I'm always on the look out for new books on the subject. The appearance
of the Celts is more than just a passing interest for me. For the last
10 months I've been working on two sculpting projects, accurate
depictions of Celt warriors from the Hallstatt and La Tene periods. Here
are some other books I've found useful:

Celtic Art, Megaw
Beyond Celt, German and Scytian, Wells
The Barbarians Speak, Wells
The Celtic World, Green (ed.)
