About the Author

Jean Manco is the author of numerous books and articles, including The Spirit of Care: the eight-hundred year history of St John's Hospital, Bath.


'A fresh and challenging look at the story of the Celts' - Family Tree
'Thoughtful, thought-provoking, erudite yet accessible, with an engaging style ... The discussion of current DNA research is what gives this book a particular originality and edge. Where it challenges either long-held or more recent dogmatisms, it does so with grace and sensitivity.' - Miranda Aldhouse-Green, Emeritus Professor of Archaeology, Cardiff University
'Jean Manco is a phenomenon. In Blood of the Celts she sieves the swirling murk of academic specialisms (linguistics, literature, genetics and archaeology) to extract the gold. Once again she proves to be an excellent interpreter of interesting times.' - David Miles, Former Chief Archaeologist, English Heritage
'Clearly written ... well researched' - Folklore
'[Manco's] books read like the work of a dynamic and talented young researcher, energised by the discoveries of genetics and their potential for casting light on history' - David Miles, Minerva
