Dalen Alba, 2013. 48 pages. Paperback.
Translated to Gaelic by Raghnaid Sandilands.
It’s only natural that Asterix should attend a Gaelic Ùlpan course before his brand new adventure. Asterix ann an Dùthaich nan Cruithneach brings Asterix to the land of the enigmatic Picts of Caledonia — the only people in Ancient Britain to successfully resist Roman invasion, and had a long wall built to keep them at home.
In this Highland adventure, Asterix will, for the first time ever, leave Gaul to visit another Celtic people, the Picts, famous for their blue tattoos, their intricate stone carvings and exquisite silverwork — but sadly no literary texts and only scant references in ancient documents. So, coupled with Scotland’s rich Gaelic heritage, this new adventure has a fascinating blank canvas on which to draw what will be one of the best Asterix adventures ever!
