Description

300 BC - AD 100

In the 1st century BC, Strabo wrote of the Celts: ‘The whole race... is madly fond of war, high-spirited and quick to battle... and on whatever pretext you stir them up, you will have them ready to face danger, even if they have nothing on their side but their own strength and courage'. This book gives an insight into the life of the Celtic warrior, and his experience of battle - on foot, on horseback, and as a charioteer. It also details Celtic society and studies the vital ritual nature of Celtic warfare, from the naked gaesatae to the woad-painted warriors.

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Stephen Allen is an expatriate who has lived and worked in Brussels for many years. He has a great passion for history with a particular interest in the pre-Roman Iron Age. He is a keen amateur archaeologist, regularly taking part in the excavation of Romano-British sites in Southern England. This is his first book for Osprey. Wayne Reynolds was born in Leeds, UK, where he also attended art college. He has had a life-long passion for illustration, and since 1991 has worked as a professional artist. Wayne has provided illustrations and source material for many gaming companies, creating figures, landscapes and interiors, as well as providing core characterisation. He is perhaps best known though for his work on titles such as 2000AD, Slaine, and Judge Dredd. A recent arrival to the Osprey stable, Wayne is also a keen modeller and historical re-enactor.
