#Free Kindle Ú Die Kelten Ó eBook or E-pub free

I read this a long time ago in a galaxy far away My first vision of the celts, and this book set the stage for my way of looking at the Dorian Greeks, who were probably celts. I learned so much from reading this book The writing style is quite a bit denser than the pop culturish history books written these days to please the masses but as opposed to that genre, you actually learn something when you read this book Lots of things I would ve given it five stars, but it lended almost to the too dense side Some specific problems included not understanding the place name references he d use province names or old place names that unless you were a historian or devotee of geography you would not know , not explicitly tying things together enough with historical groups of people and directly how they relate perhaps a table would ve helped , and cumbersome writing at times I thought it seemed translated awkwardly. #Free Kindle ë Die Kelten à THE CELTS Is The Year Epic Story Of The North European Civilization That Rivaled Greece And Rome For Richness, Diversity And Power Originating With Fierce Naked Warriors Who Collected Enemy Heads As War Trophies, The Celts Eventually Made Their Influence Felt From The Middle East To The Atlantic, Bringing With Them A Unique Culture And Mythology, And A Style Of Art Considered The Greatest Achievement North Of The Alps After The Ice Age The Romans Called Them Furor Celticus And At The Height Of Their Empire Ankara, Cologne, Belgrade And Milan All Spoke Celtish THE CELTS Is The Remarkable Story Of Our North European Cultural Ancestors, Whose Language Is Still Spoken By Than Two Million People In Brittany, Scotland, Ireland And Wales I in no way possess any substantial knowledge of ancient history A working knowledge, but no expertise I am certain that to a Celtic historical anthropological archaeological expert, this book would be about as basic as The American Revolution for Dummies would be to an early American historian However, for the novice, or even the curious , I think this is an excellent introduction to the Celtic people As a culture, they seem mysterious, and are greatly misunderstood, mostly owing to the lack of written records Herm s writing style was not the most readable, but I suppose this was originally written in Deutsch, meaning that something was sure to be lost in translation Overall, an interesting read for someone just becoming acquainted with Celtic culture and history. excellent and very readable resource for those interested in the early history of the celts this is a historical and academic study, not a new age how to book.highly recommended for those who are seriously interested in the true celts and not the bastardized version of them. This book had such a comprehensive and visual description of the Celtic people in the light of history, especially in their campaigns in Italy and Europe I learned aspects of their conquests I never could have imagined I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in learning about this forgotten people. Hey, when do you stop reading a book on the Celts Give up When the author starts gibbering on about Atlantis Informatief boek over de Kelten. So interessant kann Geschichtsunterricht seinDie Kelten haben die europ ische Geschichte entscheidend mitbestimmt schlie lich haben sie einst sogar Rom erobert dennoch ist das Wissen ber diese Volk sehr l ckenhaft das liegt wohl daran, dass Geschichte immer schon von Siegern geschrieben wurde Dennoch gelingt es Gerhard Herm mit diesem Werk, das Volk wieder erstehen zu lassen und uns sehr viel scheinbar verlorenes Wissen wieder zu vermitteln.Herm l sst kaum ein Thema aus So schreibt er ber Theorien ber die Herkunft der Kelten, ber deren Sozialsystem, ber ihre Kriege, ihre Kunst, ihren Beitrag zur europ ischen Entwicklung, ihr Leben auf den britischen Inseln und da d rfen dann nat rlich Artus und Merlin auch nicht fehlen.Die ausgezeichnete Recherche allein reicht aber nat rlich nicht um sich f nf Sterne zu verdienen dazu ist es auch n tig den Stoff interessant und kurzweilig aufzubereiten Genau dies allerdings gelingt dem Autor ausgezeichnet In einem wunderbar packenden Stil werden Fakten pr sentiert, ohne jemals trocken oder gar unverst ndlich zu werden Wenn Sie schon immer etwas ber die Kelten erfahren wollten, dann ist dieses wohl das Buch der Wahl. This book was a major letdown, and I did not read it all First of all, through the first three chapters or so, I kept wondering when the book would be about the Celts There was a chapter about Romans, another one on Greeks, and then another one apparently about Atlantis, but there really wasn t much on Atlantis in there anyway Sure, I know that the Romans and the Celts history are intertwined But I have to say that I really don t care how the Romans think the Celts lived I want to know what archaeologists have to say about how the Celts lived This book wasn t it.That and some of the paragraphs made no sense One reviewer mentioned that it seemed as though the book had been badly translated from another language, and that accurately describes my impression In one paragraph, the author starts to talk about sacred cows, wanders off into the origin of the word Alp and then mentions something about the profane use of cattle which by the structure of the paragraph would mean that it had something to do with the word Alp, but since that wasn t explained, it s hard to tell And what would that be I have an idea, butit was never explained in that paragraph or any of the following ones This author needs a better editor.
