Graham Robb describes his minutely-researched cycle ride across Europe along the route of the legendary Heraklean Way which stretches from the south-western tip of the Iberian peninsula, across the Pyrenees to the Alps. Along the way he delves into Julius Caesar's descriptions of Gaul and its inhabitants, analyses different versions of the myth of Hercules and explores the physical and intellectual world of the ancient Celts - their gods, art and sophisticated scientific knowledge.
