Simon Jenkins: Who Exactly Are the Celts? image

Since Scotland’s independence referendum and Brexit, the United Kingdom has felt far from united. Into this context, former editor of the Times Sir Simon Jenkins offers a timely analysis of Celtic identity, from its mysterious origins to its re-emergence today in the countries surrounding England.
The Celts: A Sceptical History is a cogent, no-holds-barred analysis of Anglo-Celtic relations, past, present and future. Today, he speaks to Sheena McDonald.
