i've heard that there are lots of parallels between north american
natives and the celts. right now at work i'm processing and cataloging
artifacts from native sites and pondering this topic is something to keep
my mind off of the more tedious stuff. however i can't see any parallels
at all ... this could be due to my extremely scanty knowledge of n.a.
native history, and i've asked my boss but due to his rather scanty
knowledge of the celts he wasn't a big help :>.
are there just spiritual parallels or was their way of life similar in
some aspects too? celtic people were agriculturalized and i know that the
huron and iroquois (to name tribes that i can actually spell) hunted so
that's a big difference. also when the huron would attack a village they
wouldn't burn down the village or destroy anything .. did the celts do
this too? does anyone know if all celtic villages were palisaded? having
spent the last 8 months working on a huron palisade i know a bit about
n.a. palisades and they were mostly to keep the livestock and kids etc. in
and wild animals out ... not for defence. is this like celtic villages?
i know this topic (or something like it) has cropped up before on the
list so my apologies to any who have tired of this sort of subject.
