A reddit for all your Celtic history and myth.
Illustrations by the artist Angus McBride(1931 – 2007). McBride has become a prominent illustrator of Celtic imagery, exerting an immense influence on the popular imagination concerning Celts. He also covered a great many other themes, including the works of Tolkien. An artist worth investigating!
I do know that within the celtic tribes, there was a strong dairy, grain, and fish culture. The Wiccan neo-pagans have made an effort to revive it, but by most means quite inauthentic. The herbs at the time were Parsley, sage, Thyme, and I believe marjoram and lavender too. Is there any dishes that stood the test of time? Any cooking techniques? Was it all lost in the dialogue?

Hello! This is my first post to this subreddit, so bear with me, though, I am so happy that I found it!
I have heard that nails were kept quite groomed in higher classes of people. I also have heard that women would "crimson" their nails. I was wondering if anyone knows/ has an idea of why they did this (and where this information comes from)? Was it perhaps a spiritual thing or just a beauty standard?
Tbh, I am just looking at exhausting all of my resources before I just say "well, seems that there is no surviving evidence", so sorry if this is a little bit a "dumb" post lol
