Group Rules

1. In this particular group please expect that all answers will be given according to historical, anthropological, or traditional information. Anything that is outside of this, often labeled UPG, should be noted as such before hand to avoid confusion.

2. All Real Pagan rules apply, but it is worth reiterating that this is not the forum for werewolves, vampires, or the like. 

3. Everyone is to be respected and treated fairly, however, we WiPers aren't accustomed to handling everyone with kid gloves. If someone offends you in any way just do everyone a favor and ask for clarification and intention before getting upset. Constructive criticism is often an unpleasant but necessary aspect of life. YOU WILL BE OK. 

4. Please read any and all responses through completely. Repeating oneself in the same thread is just as annoying as "Post Redundancy". 

5. Because it bears repeating, Also, "Prevent Post Redundancy-- Check First with Search!". Also, please remember that we generally have a lot of great discussions and pages to offer. Checking through everything not only prevents redundancy but often informs you on things you didn't even know you didn't know.

Hi Amara :-)  

Good to see you back on the forum.

Great to hear from you, Amara. :) How's school treating you?

Yep, she does a lot of good work.

M. Green seems to a prolific author on all things Celtic, has a good pedigree also.

Sounds like it would be a good read.

Thanks Lark. Wikipedia does have it's moments. Ive used it before in certain situations.

Although Wikipedia isn't always a wonderful source for information, it can point you at references that are worth investigating.  In regards to the Celts taking and displaying the heads of their enemies two sites in what would have been Gaul, and particularly involving the Belgae are Gournay-sur-Aronde and Ribemont-sur-Ancre.  Archeology Magazine ran an excellent article on the finds at these two cult centers in Volume 54 Number 2, March/April 2001.  I'd also recommend the book "Dying for the Gods" by Miranda Green as an interesting look into the human sacrificial practices of the Celts.

The Chursci also nailed Roman heads to trees after the Battle of Teutoberg Forest.

Yes, perhaps a tribal cult. I came across it researching the Germanic wars, I will try and find the location.

From what I read it is. Cant remember the name, but it could be specific to the tribe since it is such a head scratcher.
