Spanish Steps recounts Tim Moore's pilgrimage along the ancient 500 mile route from St Jean Pied-de-Port on the French side of the Pyrenees to the cathedral at Santiago de Compostela in Spain, housing the remains of Spain's patron saint. His companion on the walk is a donkey called Shinto. Tim Moore derives bounteous amusement from his peculiar fellow travellers, an assortment of devout Christian pilgrims, new-age mystics and people looking for a cheap, boozy outdoor holiday. He also muses on pilgrims past, an illustrious crowd including Charlemagne, St Francis of Assisi and Chaucer's Wife of Bath. Moore himself is untroubled by any religious belief, does not speak a word of Spanish and knows nothing about donkeys. But armed with the Codex Calixtinus, a 12th-century handbook to the route and expert advice on donkey management from Robert Louis Stevenson, he sets out to master this most intransigent of beasts and to excise the cancer of cynicism from his sceptical soul.

This book has two aims: to introduce new readers to the riches of Old French storytelling and the culture from which it arose and, secondly, to suggest a way out of the impasse apparent in current criticism of Aucassin et Nicolete. Each chapter of the book begins with an English version of a section of the Old French text. This is followed by an analysis of the corresponding passage of the original text using the English version as a point of reference. Many of the text's poetic structures survive translation and it is in these that the discussion finds its point of departure.

The era of the Celts lasted more than 1,000 years in the history of Central and Western Europe. This lavishly illustrated volume comprehensively documents Celtic culture from its emergence in the Hallstatt period to the era of Christianization, between Anatolia and Ireland, Slovakia and Portugal. A brief, yet detailed introduction explains and comments on the material, pointing out connections and interpreting the illustrations, drawings, and maps. An index of illustrations refers the reader to further literature on the subject, as well as providing additional information. This fascinating period of ancient European culture is presented in a total of almost 800 illustrations documenting major items from over 60 museums and collections. More than 160 scholars and artists from Ireland to Turkey have contributed invaluable pictorial material. The author has traveled the entire settlement area of the Celts, in particular the British Isles, and supplements the illustrations of objects with his own atmospheric landscape photographs, providing fascinating ethnographic details of everyday life, traditional customs, and popular piety.
