The Celts

I've been reading a very interesting account of The Celts, titled "The Celts" by Gerhard Herm. From the jacket:

"The epic story of the Western World's third great civilization-Germany's number one bestseller.

The Celts is the 2000-year epic story of the North European civilization that rivaled Greece and Rome for richness, diversity, and power. Originating with fierce naked warriors who collected enemy heads as war trophies, the Celts eventually made their influence felt from the Middle East to the Atlantic, bringing with them a unique culture and mythology, a style of art considered the greatest achievement north of the Alps after the Ice Age. The Romans called them furor celticus and at the height of their empire Ankara, Cologne, Belgrade, and Milan all spoke Celtish. THE CELTS is the remarkable story of our North European cultural ancestors, whose language is still spoken by more than two million people in Brittany, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales."

The book is filled with information I never knew, but find very interesting.

I have to say you have balls doing this, but I would expect nothing less from the King of Alaska, esp. given your heritage. I'm impressed. My question is: have you ever fought naked? Would you? I guess the Greeks and Romans fought while wearing skirts, and then there's the Kilts thing...I don't know where I'm going with this. But I like the concept.

Brennus looks like he is happy at what he has found. I would be too.
