well this may not be the best place to post this but since it was broched, I am Pagan a druid infact. I will say that the druids cheaf daity was male yes but there was a womans order that, reveared godess form what i can tell form myth folk lore and poems form the regen and dated to the pre christion era. thay where both equel.

on the topic of head hunting it is a comon prictis among warrior tribs. as for human scrific it was prictised but it sounds like you have been baseing your histric info on roman propaganda, well it is true that celts pectised human sacrifec there just is not the evednce that thay did so on a scalle sujested by julies cezer or even on the scale of that by the romans. if thay did on the scale sujested by the romans there would be evedce all over the place in britten and ireland and even france but indead there is not. it was sead by julis cezer that hes troops where shocked by the brutataly of the celts, I find that hard to bleve form an empire known the lenth and breath of the world for there butalaty. If any one had been shucked it would have to have been the clets towred roman brutaltay.....

in fact now there are many historyins that question the vailedaty of cezers clambes of the celts an I am so inclind as well, and it should also be taken into acount that there may wall have been more sacrifces form a ppl in dreas for it was often the pristly class home valteared the be scrificed as evedicne by the lack of strugleing or defecive wounds and bindings on the bog men
