Thomas Finan's discussion of his background struck a chord with me. I
spent a few weeks in Austria and Germany in March, and became intrigued
by the implications of the salt and amber trade in Celtic Europe. Does
anyone know any good references on these topics?
To answer Mel's survey questions, my interest in things Celtic is not
professional. By day I am an economist working for the Federal government.
I do have fond hopes of writing science fiction and fantasy some day and
the Celtic culture seems to have wonderful material for such a pursuit.
