I watched it on the web because Celtic mythology was among the leftover from my art studies.

This documentary is less interesting than the one about Japan as this one uses a lot strong orange light (to symbolize old past!), had minimal real artifacts and boring experts.

What's surprising is that it introduces Celts as all people contemporary of Romans and north of Rome. So, my Gallic ancestors and British people are old brothers.

As I have said about Japan is still true here: each civilization has traits that are enduring and result from big moments in history.

Today, French have still the identity of Celts: we are less a nation than a collection of tribes. We like the fights and the feast. We have a touch for songs, storytelling, we can let woman be the leader and our art is very naturalistic (art deco in a way).
