Solitary Druids From the North

The Druids were the educated elite of what is now called the “Celtic” race. Many historians and archaeologists now argue that there never was an actual Celtic race but for the sake of clarity and to give a sense of familiarity, I will use the term throughout this booklet. The Celts were a tribal people, with each tribe having its own chieftain. They were often at war with one another, raiding nearby tribal villages and stealing their neighbors’ cattle. They were a warrior race who, in one of those strange historical paradoxes, created the most beautiful art and inspired a religion which had a deep respect for Nature.

The Roman invasion of the Celtic regions was made easier because Celtic society was so fragmented. The Romans systematically conquered one tribe at a time. The only common link between the Celtic tribes was Druidry. The Druids were the prophets, magicians, seers, healers, royal advisors and judges. Druids could move in complete safety between tribes as their murder was punishable by death. Very quickly the Druids began to unite the tribes and give them the focus they needed against the invaders. This move did not go unnoticed and it was in the year 61CE that two crushing blows were dealt against the British. The first was the sacking of Ynys Mon, the Isle of Anglesey, off the north coast of Wales, which was a major centre of Druidic learning. As the Romans conquered Britain, the Druids retreated to Ynys Mon and became trapped. It was written by Tacitus that the Druidesses were like screaming furies who spat curses across the bay at the assembling Roman armies. Although this chilled the blood of the Centurions, they attacked and won the battle. All of the Druid Groves (sacred clearings within the forests) were destroyed and all Druids, Druidesses and their children were slaughtered. The other blow was the defeat of the Iceni Queen Boudicca whose revolt very nearly put an end to the entire Roman occupation. However, the massacre of the Druids did not destroy the religion. It continued in smaller groups and gradually the Druid was seen as little more than a wandering magician. A far cry from the high status previously held.

The ancient Druids consisted of three “castes”, or divisions – Bards, Ovates and Druids.

So my tradition is a Northern Isles tradition (a branch from the Pictish wicca) i would share my knowledge and ma ritual (Celtic and North) here with you.

This group has for objective to help druids solitary has to practise their alone druidism and also every person who follows the Celtic or Scandinavian solo tradition.
