Your local art museum has a directory of world museums. Perhaps they can
tell you the name, info over the telephone.

The Celtic Studies Association of North America is a good group
(professional, publishing in nature) to inquire into. I can provide info
if you desire.
>What is a good source of literature for recent discoveries of Celtic culture?
>I have just about exhausted the local libraries (T.G.E. Powell, Nora Chadwick,
The exhibition catalogue from that Munich show is the one to see/own. It's
large (about 2 inches thick, about 15 inches by 18 inches), and is complete
with contributions from the world's best current Celtic experts. There is,
of course, a large bibliography in the back. My local art museum library
had a hard copy, I ordered a softback copy from a bookstore in NYC. Info
forthcoming, if you desire. Hope this helps. Best, Sherry
