Opening at the British Museum in London on the 24th September is a major exhibition which will examine the full history of Celtic art and identity.
- Many objects provide clues to and raise questions about Celtic identity.
- From the depths of the River Thames come magnificent Iron Age treasures such as the Waterloo helmet and Battersea shield.
- Roman jewellery, early medieval manuscripts and crosses, a Liberty tea set and even a modern football shirt tell a constantly evolving British and Irish story.
- Major loans, such as the spectacular Gundestrup cauldron, reveal profound cultural connections across Europe.
