Under the Spell of the Druids- Ronald Hutton, History Today May 2009

“Historical facts about the Druids are few, yet this very lack of tangible evidence has allowed their image to be reworked and appropriated by the English, Irish, Scots and Welsh for over 500 years. Ronald Hutton examines the modern history of an ancient order.” See the article here.

Ronald Hutton is Professor of History at the University of Bristol and the author of Blood and Mistletoe: The History of the Druids in Britain published this month by Yale University Press.

About the Author

Retired from an environmental protection career in California, and letting my forested land in the Southeast heal itself, I traveled throughout North America for 4 years.
