Vikings and Celts

Welcome stranger, don't stay in this cold mountain wind, come in.

Have a seat on this wooden chair while I put another log in the fireplace..

You would like to have a drink I guess ? Hmm, nothing better than a good pint of Mjød or Cervoise in our taverns.

Have a look around, all those pictures have been bringing here by the members of our community..

From the mystical dark forests, to the strenght of a north warrior, the beauty of our ancestor's mountains..

Do not stay alone stranger, it's not safe outside, join us.

The Celts or Kelts were an ethno-linguistic group of tribal societies in Iron Age and Medieval Europe who spoke Celtic languages and had a similar culture, although the relationship between the ethnic, linguistic and cultural elements remains uncertain and controversial.

At the dawn of history in Europe, the Celts then living in what is now France were known as Gauls to the Romans. The territory of these peoples probably included the low countries, the Alps and what is now northern Italy.
Their descendants were described by Julius Caesar in his Gallic Wars. Eastern Gaul was the centre of the western La Tène culture. In later Iron Age Gaul, the social organisation was similar to that of the Romans, with large towns. From the 3rd century BC the Gauls adopted coinage, and texts with Greek characters are known in southern Gaul from the 2nd century.
