    Default The Celts: Blood Iron And Sacrifice (BBC Series)


    Source. Roman coin 48 BC. Probably made because Ceasar had just conquered Gaul. Characteristic spiked hair, goatee, and Torc.

    This month BBC aired a Documentary on Celts titled: The Celts - Blood, Iron and Sacrifice. The documentary is lead by Alice Roberts and Neil Oliver who are both perfect documentary personalities.

    It has 3 parts all of whom you can find on YouTube. I watched the first one. For the most part I think it's great. It teaches a lot about what is known about the Celts and debated theories about the Celts.

    What I don't like is exaggerations that are meant to make the film interesting instead of accurate. The documentary at time uses the same biased narrative about the relationship between Romans-Celts as is given between European colonist-Native Americans in my school history book. The exact same phrases are used at times.

    The Celts are very mysterious because they didn't write and basically disappeared after (British Isles doesn't count in this case)being conquered by Rome. Most information we have are from remains and writings by non-Celts, so no one knows a lot about them. Lots is guess work.

    It is important to learn about the Celts because..

    The earliest documentation we have of Celts comes from the Iron age.

    The old-theory that the Hallstatt culture(700-500 BC) was proto-Celtic has been proven incorrect. The Celts have an older origin. Traits associated with the Hallstatt culture are styles that grew in popularity in an already Celtic speaking Central and Western Europe.

    Ultimately Celtic-languages came from modern day Russia/Ukraine like all(most?) Indo European languages but that was way back in 3000 BC. The origin of Celtic languages may not be as simple as IEs arrived from East Europe in 2500 BC then expanded with Celtic languages. Like Slavic languages did in the Middle Ages, Celtic languages could have expanded on top of already existing Indo European languages very quickly.

    Now that the Hallstatt=Proto Celtic theory has been debunked, there's many new theories on Celtic origins.

    Admittedly I'm Anne Rice influenced, but I'm a big fan of the Celts. What a shame the Romans replaced their languages in France and Spain. Anyway, here's the documentary:

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Alices's accent is educated Wessex (S & SW England), the vowels are shifted from standard English and it's rhotic. It's heard in the area of Belgic Iron-age settlement (500 BC onward) , the Romans called the Belgae Germano-Celts (Gallic culture, Germanic language - ancestral to Fries?) so I explain to my Welsh colleagues that the only real Celts who came to Britain spoke a Germanic language.

I wanted to acknowledge that if people don’t have a sex life, it’s not for some moral reason, it’s just because they’re ugly. Once you’ve said it, it sounds obvious, but I wanted to say it.” — Michel Houellebecq
