Hi, its difficult to take this crazy world seriously that much is for certain.. on anglesey we only have historical evidence ( in roman writings ) of druids existence on the island , with no archeological evidence as such, only the oak groves associated with them.
While I most certainly do understand the importance of archeological evidence there are things it can and never will tell us about,. I merely used a turn of phrase in my previous comment to make my point.
Look at the incredible glastonbury peninsula landscape and the fact that there was an important 200 bc iron age settlement and others nearby in all directions.
If glastonbury with its sacred springs wasn't an important religious site to the druids and every other ancient briton before them well im at a loss where was !.

All of which ignores the point I made... that we have no way of knowing what the druids did or didn't believe.
