In tracing the history and evolution of pre-Christian Celtic ornamentation in the British Isles, this well-documented study describes and discusses examples dating from the earliest ornament to 700 CE and ranging from fragments of a bronze hanging bowl decorated with finely detailed palm leaves to a bronze bucket with embossed ying-yang scrolls. Originally published in 1933, the study is reprinted here with its original drawings and monochrome plates.
