This is a small book that manages to review most of the information available about historical druids we know today, even though it was written over 30 years ago.

The author concetrates on the pre-modern druids and only makes passing remarks about the modern groups, and these are rather unflattering, but there are other books, more recently written, that cover the history of modern druidry in more detail.

I found the information presented in an easy to digest format, enhanced by a few good illustrations and a bibliography allowing further reading.

I enjoyed this little pelican paperback and will happily recommend it as a starter book to those seeking out a good history of the ancient class of people known as druids.
