Thread Name: BS: Who are the Welsh?
Subject: RE: BS: Who are the Welsh?
Druidism....yet another modern-ish contraption. Invented in the 19th century. There didnĀ“t seem to be any unifying religion at the time of early historic peoples of Europe, unless you were Roman of course. The pagan religions ( those not Roman) had no unifying pantheon or theology ( unless nature worship was the unifying force). So British Celts were a 17th century invention ( as was Morris Dancing) Druids were sort of made up in the 19th Century and folk musicians are desended from neandertals...my world lies shattered around my feet.
