currently ankle-deep in mark kurlansky’s salt: a world history (excellent, and not only for the following excerpt):
“Celts did not illustrate their culture on temple walls as the Egyptains did: nor did they have chroniclers as the Greeks and Romans did. The guardians of Celtic culture, the Druids, did not leave written records. So most of what we know of them is from Greek and Roman historians who described the Celts as huge and terrifying men in bright fabrics.”
