Description of the subject depicted in the print: THE GAULS AND THE CELTS - THE ANCIENT BRITISH - filled the entire ancient world with the sound of their weapons, until once victorious they proved unable to develop an organized sense of nationality. As a result, they lapsed into a state of military decadence two or three centuries before the birth of Christ. Their military leaders carried splendid weapons and had magnificent horses and chariots. Over a tunic embroidered with flowerets of gold, a chief would wear a gilded cuirass or a shiny coat of iron mail - a Gallic invention. This was beautiful but ineffective, and in 58 BC the Gauls were conquered by Julius Caesar. Figs. 1,3,28 and 34. Objects make of bronze, 8 and 16. Bronze necklace, very finely engraved, 7.
