THE CELTS By Serena Quondamatteo
Who Were The Celts? • The Celts were fearless, ruthless warriors and they were also highly skilled metal smiths. • The Celts discovered iron, which was much stronger than bronze.
Round houses • The Celts lived in round houses with thatched roofs of straw or heather. The walls of their houses were made from local material . There were no windows so it got quite stuffy in there but there was a hole in the roof to let the smoke from the fire escape.
WARRIORS • The Celts often fought naked - and it's believed that women would fight as well. Their main weapons were the sword and the spear, and they sometimes fought in horse-drawn war chariots.
Religion • The Celts were pagans and worshipped many gods. • They worshipped their gods through sacrifice by giving them valuable objects to keep them happy and sacrificed animals and humans.
