CREATIVE CELTS  (1 hr.)
This workshop is available signed

By studying a map of ancient Britain, it becomes clear how many individual tribes there were and more importantly how disparate they were. They would constantly fight each other with sling shots, bows and arrows and swords. They were however very good craftworkers making beautiful Torcs to wear and very elaborate swords. They liked to decorate their weapons and make jewellery and often made gifts to offer to their gods. The environment was very important to them so some of their Gods included the elements.

We learn that women had as much power as men in Celtic times and that female Queens were highly respected throughout England. Then learn why Boudicca started the uprising against the Roman Empire and how she managed to unite the Celtic tribes to fight the invader.
