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 didn´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.
