About this item


About the Book

"Intriguing and stimulating." --Jane Smiley, Harper's

Book Synopsis

In this real-life historical treasure hunt, bestselling author Graham Robb--"one of the more unusual and appealing historians currently striding the planet (New York Times)"--reveals the mapping of ancient Gaul as a reflection of the heavens, demonstrates the lasting influence of Druid science and recharts the exploration of the world and the spread of Christianity. This "fascinating" (Los Angeles Times) history offers nothing less than an entirely new understanding of the birth of modern Europe.

Review Quotes

The Discovery of Middle Earth will take you on a grand tour of the ancient world's secrets.--James Norton "Christian Science Monitor"

An ingenious and thoroughly gripping historical and archaeological bolt from the blue.-- "New Statesman"

Daring...thrilling.--Laura Miller "Salon"

Raises intriguing questions about the relationship between tribe and empire, local identity and larger superstructure.--Rachel Donadio "New York Times"

Robb manages his revelations with a showman's skill, modestly conscious that his book is unfurling a map of Iron Age Europe and Britain that has been inaccessible for millenia.-- "Telegraph"

The work of a man to whom the past is vividly present.--Ian Morris "New York Times Book Review"
