New finds call for another look at women in European history. Ever more convincingly, buried treasures show that Europe’s ancient Celts valued females in ways that later empires did not. Archaeology is uncovering vast differences between these family-centric populations and the Roman Empire that fueled its expansion by conquest, occupation and enslavement of Celtic peoples. Over the past 2000 years, institutionalized sexism has carried Rome’s elitist male domination all the way to the present.

Hear an intro from Jacqui
“Tracking pre-Christian ancestors has revolutionized our understanding of Europe and woven together loose threads that have made no sense. The greatest bonus is that we now feel connected all over Europe - wherever we travel, we are at home. We hope that the book will give readers the same sense of a rich, pan-European heritage - and help give Celts their due.”

Ancient tombs and treasure troves throughout Great Britain, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia give insights into a formerly vibrant culture that is no longer recognized.
