Great introduction to the Iron Age

I was pleasantly surprised at the straight-forward and conversational style of this audio book 'Icons of the Iron Age'. Professor Susan A. Johnston delivers her lecture in a relaxed and accessible way, which is easy to listen to and provides an excellent introduction to the subject. Those new to this era in history will receive a superb overview, whilst those familiar with this topic will be intrigued by the historical developments highlighted by Prof. Johnston. I would recommend this audio book highly for its dispelling of some of the myths surrounding ancient Celtic peoples, plus its dialogue on the historical sources that have informed our views of these cultures.

Disappointed

What a pity! As a keen and easygoing listener, I have been looking forward to discovering more about the Celts in this series. While I am sure the content is interesting, I'm afraid I have found it impossible to focus on the subject because of the intrusive verbal tic 'om' which is repeated up to 56 times in five minutes!
