This book is not a religous text, but it does study, and theorize about the druidic tradtion in Britian at the time of the Roman invasion. It is an Anthroplogy/Archeology book..but it does touch upon beliefs, theories, and the subject, and roll of sacrifice during that time....


Title- "The Life and Death of a Druid Prince. "

Editorial Reviews
From Library Journal
The discovery of a 2000-year-old man's body in a peat bog in Lindow Moss, near Manchester, England on August 1, 1984 brought the authors together to study his remains, specifically his last meal. Ross is a Celtic specialist and archaeologist; Robins a chemist specializing in archaeological work. Their collaboration has resulted in this engrossing archaeological study which unfolds like a well-told detective story. With clarity and scientific skill, they reconstruct the ritual sacrifice of this 30-year-old man they deduce to have been a Celtic aristocrat. Probably a Druid priest, the man was sacrificed to the gods in A.D. 60 in the wake of a series of disasters, including the advance of Roman armies bent on crushing the Druids. The appendixes provide an overview of the Druids--their institutions, beliefs, and archaeological remains. An engrossing work for laypersons and specialists alike.

Here are some I have just thought of:


Buckland's Complete book of Witchcraft - Raymond buckland

Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner - Scott Cunningham (kind of fluffy at times, but still a good read)

Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs - Scott Cunningham

Buffalo Woman Comes Singing - Brooke Medicine Eagle (some fluff in here, but has some great exercises)

Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu

Drawing down the moon- Margot Adler

Margot Adler is pagan, and is a reporter for National Public Radio (NPR). The book is a study on the Culture of modern wiccan's in general. It is obvious in the way it is written she works for NPR....

Ok book.... little long winded here and there...
It's been YEARS since I have read it....

I know it has had many reprints, and added material over the years...

When I did a pagan radio program on our local public radio station we interviewed her. She is very informed, and well spoken....
