The early celts left no written texts, are we going to forever hold this against such a wonderful and colourful culture ! after 61ad the druids lived on in ireland and it shows in their ancestors today.. the irish people . Look around you, feel it in the air at these sites which have passed through so many eras in time way, way beyond the iron age. there is some archeological evidence but we dont need it ! .. the importance surely for the celtic tribal leaders speaks for itself at these special places ? once again Not new age , very very old age !.

You can't take your personal feelings about places and extrapolate from that beliefs that you expect people to accept as historic fact. Again, we know next to nothing about the druids, so any claims about what they did or didn't believe are nothing more than speculation. If you want to seriously claim that we don't need archaeological evidence to understand history, then it's pretty hard to take you seriously.

How, specifically, does the importance of Glastonbury to "Celtic tribal leaders" speak for itself? And how, specifically, do you arrive at the conclusion that the druids (about whom, remember, we know next to nothing) held beliefs that encompassed "chakras"?
