Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with a discussion of the expansion of the Celts to the south-east, which is widely reflected in Greek sources and was destined to exert a formative influence on the classical perception of the Celts. The chapter then details the Celtic style of warfare, with which the Greeks and Romans were familiar as with no other aspect of Celtic culture, on the basis of their own experience. This is followed by a description of victory monuments and sacrificial sites.
