Three thousand years ago, at the end of what we call the Bronze Age, Anarhys' tribe is facing starvation, and in a last-ditch effort to save it Anarhys, Yrwen and Cavan go on a journey to exchange cattle for vital bronze farming tools. There is a rumour that the Celts, a barbaric race of people with mystical knowledge of a new and frightening metal, have arrived. Dismissing the rumours as a fairytale, Anarhys is shocked when the Celts do indeed arrive, and he and the others are defenceless against them. In an attempt to protect the three of them he salvages a sword from a sacred pool where it has been placed as a gift for the gods, and this has consequences for all of them. The Bronze Age was a time of climate change, technology advance, and social and spiritual upheaval, just as we have today. The story may be seen as a parable that tells the reader as much about the present as about the past. It is a tale that should be read.
