"Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the Druids, the priests of ancient Europe. Although ancient authors including Julius Caesar and Pliny wrote about them, virtually nothing is known about the activities and rites of the ancient Druids. Banned by the Romans, they were effectively eradicated by the rise of Christianity. In the early modern era, however, interest in the Druids revived, and later writers reinvented and romanticised their activities."
Producer: Thomas Morris.
