The Celtic warrior was one part of the
Celtic tribes hierarchy. The warrior aristocracy was the "army" of the Celtic tribe. Men and women
both belonged to this aristocracy and both fought in battle.
Although the Celts had no "central
government" each tribe was a complete self contained unit. The Druids were the law makers and the warrior
aristocracy were the defenders and conquerors. The third "part" of each Celtic tribe consisted of the Wiccans who
were the magicians, spiritual leaders and warlocks. The everyone else was the commoners!
From that time before 700 BC to around 200 BC the
Celts conquered most of Europe, Rome, Greece and the middle East. They were the first peoples to conquer Rome and
after they did they demanded a ransom of pure Gold to leave the Romans and their city. The Romans were so fearful
they gladly paid the ransom just to rid themselves of these "barbarians" - as they were called.
