Ancient Celtic Religion

Many Neopagans talk about their religion being "Celtic", usually meaning based on something either Irish or Welsh which dates from around the arrival of Christianity to the British Isles. But what about the mainland Celts who lived and worshipped their Gods before the arrival of the Romans? What was their religion like? This workshop will explore what we know about the Celts of ancient Gaul from examinations of the writings of the peoples of the ancient Mediterranean, some of the vernacular literature and through the archeological record. This class will include a PowerPoint presentation.
