I ran into an interesting podcast on BBC Radio 4: In Our Time, The Druids.
Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the Druids, the priests of ancient Europe. His guests include:Of course, I'd be interested in a review of any of the books, particularly those dated since 2009. If you would like to submit a review to either Henge Happenings or to Keltria Journal, please do so to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of particular interest is the "For Further Reading" listing associated with the podcast. It includes several standards but also a number of books that I am not familiar with. Certainly some of them will be added to my wish list.
