Here are some links/references in addition to those listed in my ebook The 33 Worst Mistakes Writers make about the Celts.

And if you’re looking for some information on warfare, battles, weapons, tactics, or anything on different militaries l_clauswitz’s blog is a very good place to check out. The link leads to a summary post outlining the different topics he’s written on, and if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can drop him a line!

  1. Always great to see more resources for people searching for information. There is also a lot of misinformation on the net sadly. Loved the book of mistakes writers make! Did you know that Celts also invented soap. They were not ratty looking people, they loved to ‘peacock’ themselves and look good.

    Hello Brahva, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    I’m very happy to hear you enjoyed the book and found the resources here helpful. I thought it would be useful for people, and writers in particular who are creating a Celtic or pseudo-Celtic culture, to have a factual starting point for their research as it’s all too easy to find the misinformation that’s out there. Once you have the facts, you can let your imagination take wing. 🙂

    Celts were not a ratty looking people at all, you’re quite right! Colourful clothes were the norm, and you just have to look at the beautiful items of jewellery they produced to understand that Celtic men and women took great pride in their appearance.

    Thanks again, Brahva, for your comment. All the best.
