Welcome to Tursan Tuesdays, where I take you on a journey through the Celtic world.
Below is part one of a four-part series on The Ancient Celts, hosted by Terry Jones. In this first installment, Terry talks about how the Romans vilified the Celts, and scorned them, saying they were nothing more than unwashed, illiterate savages.
Yet…they humiliated the Romans during the Siege of 389 b.c.e...
Not to mention they created a solar/lunar calculator. Not bad for a bunch of illiterate heathens, eh?
The video cuts off during the explanation of the Coligny Calendar, but I’ve included a handy little link here so you can read more about. Stay tuned, next week we’ll explore part 2 and see the rest of the explanation of the Coligny Calendar 🙂
So talk to me. What did you think of this first installation of The Ancient Celts? Did you know that the Celts created the Colony Calendar? “History is written by the victor” is never more true than when talking about ancient Romans versus ancient Celts…did you know just how much Caesar influenced the rest of the world in belittling of the proud, progressive culture of the Celts?
