Countdown (Kirk McGarvey) by David Hagberg

Step back into a world of goddesses, priestesses, poets, and prophets, and relive the adventures of Boudicca, Queen Maeve, the beautiful Deirdre, and wise Arianrhod. This is the legendary world of Celtic women warriors, witches, and wise sages, a world that idealized pride and strength and glamour, and told tales of societies where women took authority, had status, and commanded respect. But how closely did the lives of real mothers, daughters, and wives match the world of myth? The truth involves rituals in which older women were beheaded and buried in mass graves, as well as practices of burying women alive who bore children out of wedlock, along with their newborns and lovers. Through a gallery of beautiful paintings and a careful exposition of both history and literature, youll find both the tales and the truth.
