I think that that is an excellent idea WTStC. You are starting to show an open mind. Hutton is very academic in his perspective and focuses mainly on history, and mainly on certain periods the eighteenth to early twentieth century are much stronger than later periods; the modern era is dealt with quite well but in much less depth and length. John and Caitlin Matthews are well worth reading, they are very good writers and have made an effort in their research. Again though they can be more historical, but some of this material informs modern Druidry. Philip Carr Gomm it must be said has written quite a lot of books on this subject. Emma Restall Orr, John Michael Greer and Penny Billington are also worth reading.
