The Cut-Throat Celts by Terry DearyNever in my life did I imagine history could be so much fun! I loved how Terry talked about the Celts but still kept the book easy, understandable, and most importantly fun. These Horrible Histories books are intended for kids, so history is easier on them, but let me tell you, adults can enjoy them too. I learnt so much! And I never felt bored or anything. I mean, Ive always liked the Celts, but not every book was easy or nice to read. And this one provides a really good picture of the Celts, feels very complete, and it includes everything from where they lived, to the culture, costumes, calendars, all of it in nice digestible chunks. I think Im going to like these books very much, and theres a whole bunch of them.

The Celts spoke Celtic languages. Celtic society and technology, although not as advanced as the Romans, was far from being primitive for its time.

Who were the Celts?
The Celts were made up of many different tribes, but their way of life was very similar. Living through the Iron Age period, they grew from mid-Europe and slowly spread out over much of the rest of Europe. Wherever they settled, Celts would set up farms and small villages. Their houses were called roundhouses made of wood or stone and contained just one big room. Being very skilled the Celts made all their own iron weapons and tools.
