Angles and Jutes Celtic Peoples?
« on: October 09, 2010, 01:21:11 PM »
After a brief conversation with a Druid recently he mentioned to me that the archeology from the home lands of these tribes  points towards the Angles and Jutes being Celts.I have had a butchers online and I cant find anything that stands out.

Any Ideas folks

Do ideas come into it?  Anyone spaced out enough to believe he is a druid is spaced out enough to believe anything. 

The best I can suggest is that we all swear mighty oaths to rededicate ourselves to raising the standard of education in this country until nobody with pubic hair and a mortgage can spout such shit with a straight face.

Is what I think.

He probably thinks that the Tollund and Grauballe bog bodies are druidic sacrifices.
I dealt - in a very small way - with Celtomania in the afterword to Wayland's Work. It is arrant nonsense of the most insidious kind, and it is very popular in some circles where facts never get in the way of opinion (see Frances Pryor for details.)

---90% off topic, so apologies, but Steve's mentioning 'Wayland' reminded me:   does anyone out there watch The Simpsons and if so have they noticed that Mr Burn's sidekick, Smithers', first name is Wayland?   Whoever wrote the show at the beginning obviously knew a fair bit about English history!
