SPRING 2000 - ISSUE 30
Issue 30 contains a strong Irish
theme, and features a pilgrimage to the early Celtic Christian
monastic site at Glendalough in County Wicklow. The cover picture
above shows Glendalough's wonderfully well preserved Round Tower,
which dates from the 9th/10th century. Inside this issue there is
also an article by Celtic artist Simeon Walker on "Travels round
Ireland", a fascinating journey which takes the reader through some
of Ireland's ancient sites, monuments and crosses, finally ending up
at Trinity Hall, Dublin, the home of the legendary Book of Kells.
There is a fascinating article on Coracle construction, by Kevin
Grimley, and we continue in our recent series of British Celtic
Tribes. In the last issue we looked at the Durotriges Tribes, and in
this current issue Margot Miller writes an informed account of the
Late Iron age Dobunni Tribes of western Britain, and their history.
There is a look at the new centre for early Celtic culture at
Latenium in Switzerland, and there are book reviews of various new
titles including the excellent new volume 'Druids' by Dr Anne Ross,
author of the well-known book 'Pagan Celtic Britain'. Anne's husband,
Richard Feacham has also written an article on the potential of
Ironwork within the Celtic crafts renaissance of the 21st century.
Plus much more, all of which can be enjoyed when you subscribe to
