Published by BCA in 1991 by arrangement with Basil Blackwell Ltd. Hardcover with d/j in good condition.

This is the first survey of religious beliefs in the British Isles, from the Old Stone Age to the coming of Chirstianity, one of the least familiar but most extensive periods in Britain's history. The author reveals the important rethinking that has taken place over Christianization and the decline of paganism, and reviews the exciting progress that has been made in tracing the survival of pre-Christian beliefs and images into the Middle Ages. He shows how a host of received ideas have been demolished, and how the pagans of ancient Britain were far more creative, complex, enigmatic, and dynamic than has previously been supposed.
