_Rethinking Celtic Art_  208p, 131 b/w & col illus. (Oxbow Books 2008)

"The authors argue that British early Celtic art is distinctively  
different from that found in other parts of Europe (though not a sign  
of isolated development), that we should move away from a notion of  
art towards a notion of aesthetics and how objects relate to people's  
senses and relations with each other, and that decorated metalwork, in  
spite of its rarity, can shed light on the social world of the time,  
and the strangeness of British society at the very end of prehistory."

The final phrase is intriguing.  Can anyone here comment on this  
book?  At $70, it needs to be good!

Dennis
