The Celtic Druids were here before Christ.
They had gifts and powers, no white robes...this was a myth, I am a Druid.
Henges were built as worship sites, to gather and sacrifice to the Ancient Spirits.
Druid culture was never written down, it was passed down ..and still is, from father to son.
The most important beliefs to the Druids were the four elements to worship.
Earth. Fire, Wind and Water. The four compass points.
They believed in Mother Earth and all things in nature.
The Druids would council their tribe and sort out disputes and wars...they also chose who should be sacrificed, and also the reasons why.
The Druid Priest was the leader and all powerful, the tribe would be in awe of them, they were all seeing and all believing.
We today believe everything on earth is alive and has feeling...ie. fish, flowers...all things that grow and live.
Salmon was one of the things that the Druids revered.
When in 6AD the men of Christ came and built their churches on the Ancient sites throughout Alba. By doing this, they done this to try and convert the Heathens as we were so called. Eventually it worked and even the Romans respected the Druids and their culture of worship.
The Druids were warriors, which the Romans found out to their cost.
The Romans had to build great walls to keep the (Barbarians)! out. That did not work.
So under the leadership of the Druid Priest, the Picts and Celts did succeed. The Romans tried one more time, they sent the 9th legion of a thousand men, they left from Falkirk and travelled into the Highlands and never came back. To this day nothing has ever been found, this was the end of the Romans in Scotland. The Romans withdrew form Alba and England, just now, a film is being made about the lost 9th legion.
Never forget the power of the Celtic Druids and their skills at war that brought down the mighty Romans.
So WE... Celtic Druids are still here today, not many, but enough.. and have been from Ancient times, Pagans we may be,but we here before Christ..and we always look after our own...
