No, not a new role-playing game . . . Over in her journal Madame La Marquise was discussing certain unpleasantnesses with fans at cons who believe in various myths about "the ancient Celts", particularly that modern paganism goes straight back to their beliefs and that the women were equal to men. To this rich stew we can add one I often hear in California, that the Gauls were somehow ecology-minded because they "lived among the forests". (Somehow I don't think slash-and-burn land clearance qualifies as ecological action.) Anyone who knows me knows my rant against this kind of thing, even though I don't have the sound academic credentials of La Marquise. So I will spare you a repetition. :-)

However, I thought I would expand one point here rather than cluttering up her LJ.
What are the sources? )
