Britain and the Celtic Iron Age


by Simon James and Valery Rigby. Published by British Museum Press. ISBN 0 7141 2306 4
I got this book out the library for research into this period in time and I am really impressed with it. There aren’t many books about the Iron Age, but some of the ones on Amazon are about £160!! This one is an affordable £9.99 and basically tells you all you need to know if you have an interest or are doing a school project. Many of the other books of this period are written by historians who get so wrapped up in their own opinions and theories about the lifestyles of these people who lived so long ago, they forget to look at the evidence.
According to the blurb, Simon James and Valery Rigby work at the British Museum, and obviously know their subject, while writing in clear English for all to understand. All their information is backed up by archaeological evidence and we’re told exactly which excavation it came from. When they make theories, we’re told the reasons why, and not simply told this is fact, like other writers (and television presenters) do.
The book is also well presented with diagrams and photos on every page so we’re not faced with boring text and we get more of a feel for the age. It has definitely helped me out and I recommend it highly.

This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
