Why read it?

1 author picked The Philosopher and the Druids as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is an enjoyable read, almost like a detective story, but it is full of information about the ancient Greeks and their contacts with the Druids of Gaul, and most likely Britain and Ireland, indicated by now lost ancient texts that remain in a few scant references.

This will help any reader gain a better understanding of the ancient Pagan world and Druidry in its original form, long before it was revived.

From Luke's list on Druids and Druidry.
