Lords of Battle by Stephen Allen
Book DescriptionTo the classical civilizations of Greece and Rome, the Celtic warrior of the late Iron Age was the archetypal barbarian: savage, undisciplined, and bloodthirsty. In a clash of cultures that lasted almost 500 years, the rich and vibrant society in which he lived, fought, and died was virtually destroyed, becoming the stuff of myth and legend. Covering the period from the first mention of the Celts by ancient Greek writers to the Roman conquest of Britain, this book examines the Celtic warrior, his society and his place within it, and the conflicts that would eventually destroy his world. Beautifully illustrated with many examples of Celtic art and craftsmanship, this book provides a fascinating insight into a culture whose legacy has endured to the present day.

Author Biography - Stephen Allen
Stephen Allen graduated in 1975 with a degree in French and Spanish from the University of Coventry, and since 1979 has lived in Brussels where he works for an international organisation. With a great passion for history and archaeology, and a particular interest in the European Iron Age, he is a keen amateur archaeologist, regularly taking part in the excavation of Romano-British sites in the south of England. His fascination for the Celts led to the publication of his first book, The Celtic Warrior (Osprey, 2001). Stephen is married and has two children. The author lives in Brussels, Belgium.
