Well, it is, more or less. Do you have something to say on those topics
Anyways, if you are interested in Brehon Laws, then take a look at my
Celtic Law page (via the Celtic-L resources page, the adress of which is
in my signature).
On Celtic Women Warriors I can't say much, as there probably weren't
much. Archaeology tells us that, in all of Europe, only about 8 graves
with female skeletons containing findings that could be called weapons
exist, of which most are graves with axes, which are, more commonly,
seen as tools during the Celtic times, the rest contains spearheads.
None of the known ones contain any "better" weaponry like shields,
swords, helmets or even armor, so most probably the graves containing
spearheads are more likely to be hunter's graves rather than women
What do you want to know about the hospitallers and their houses?
If the Irish Celts used tents is a question that's not easy to answer,
as tents usually don't leave behind many remains that can be
interpreted. However, judging from what we know about howthey settled,
the laws that exist about the makeup of farms and the equipment used
there, a frequent use of tents is highly unlikely.
Celtic clothing is a very big topic, perhaps you could be more precise
Beating up the Romans was always fine, but more often the Romans beat up
the Celts. However, what's it that you want to know here?
