The Gauls were a group of Celts, what she is saying is that she
has heard the Gauls specifically hunted heads, which is true, and other Celts
did this as well. I must reiterate, though, that no group of Celts ever was
recorded as having drunk blood, and this "brain eating" is the most
ludicrous thing I've ever heard. These tales of barbarism are results of
writing by other cultures who considered themselves superior, such as the
Romans during the invasions of Gaul, Britain, and Iberia, and the
English throughout most of their contact with the surrounding Celtic peoples.
