Above: Many prisoners of early battles were simply killed. Celtic belief was so strong that captured warriors would sooner die than serve the enemy. It was not unusual for the surviving woman from pillaged villages to be forced to care for the enemies youth who were orphaned by the countless wars being waged

A few examples of famous Celtic warriors names are Cathaoir meaning: Fighting Man, Warrior. Cattegirn which means: Battle Lord. Arthmael which means Bear Warrior.
Agro which is a Celtic word that means Battle, Slaughter.
These are just a small example of how brutal and fierce ancient Celtic warrior names were.

Battling viking and Celtic warriors are illustrated below. Some of the most famous battles in ancient history contained these two ever rivaling clans. Braveheart is one movie that depicts the clan rivalries of the past and does a brilliant job capturing a warriors spirit.

  1. The Celts in that last image are charging Romans, not Vikings.

    Celts had more-or-less disappeared by the time the Vikings came about (although the Vikings were a constant enemy of the Christians who lived in the British Isles, and those in Ireland in particular were still influenced by Celtic culture).

    1. Celtic clans and the Nordic Viking knew each other. Sharing around 1200 years of overlaping existence. Two powerful peoples to have left there mark in the history of Europe. The ground in the northern main land of Europe played witness to vicious encounters by the Celts and Nords. The Nordic Viking in later times also waged scout war against the people in present day Scotland and England and north Ireland. The people of north Ireland as well as Scotland being Gaelic speakers and decent of the Celtic clans. This fact can be found when studying genetic mapping of populations done in the past present by government funded research bodies. Read, Read, Read and you will discover.

  2. Yea, the early Celts didn’t really employ bows, arrows and hammers as weapons of war.

    Celtic warriors typically fought iron weaponry with hand spears and large oval shaped shields, often accompanied by a long dagger or a sword of varying length as a sidearm. The continental Celts were famed for their exceptionally long and masterfully made long swords, used for hacking and slashing.

    The Goidaelic Celts of Ireland and the British isles, tended to have shorter swords and more commonly favoured long iron daggers made for both thrusting and slashing as a sidearm- Due to it’s far lower cost and relative simplicity to make.

    The Goidaelic Celts (Or Gaels), typically had a larger variety of martial weapons than their continental ancestors. Although still commonly favouring the use of spears, swords, knives and shields- Axes, clubs, hammers, javelins, throwing darts and slings were more readily and enthusiastically utilised- Possibly due to the difference in available resources and the much more heavily forested terrain of the North Western isles.

    And as for the Celts being enemies of Christian Monks and missionaries… Thats somewhat true in the history of the early Catholic church. But upon constant arrival of missionaries (St. Patrick, being one among many), Celtic nations such as Ireland and Wales readily embraced Christianity.

    Now the Vikings… Those bastards used to hack open the chests of Monks with battle axes and steal their gold.

  3. Vikings were not Evil, They were not thief either. The Whole of Europe was Celtic, and Rome was the Core of the Celtic Civilization.

    Christianity was created over the Celtic Civilization, and the people responsible were the people of the “Old testament”

    The Origins of the Celts

    I have provided many proofs on my Blog, and i am going to write about the Vikings soon as well.

    1. (That is not correct), in regards to the whole of Europe at one time being entirely made up of Celtic people’s and Rome being the centre of Celtic culture. You cannot quote your sources of research because this is simple not true. Read, read, read and discover

  4. Shiva, I have no idea where you got the idea that Romans were Celts. The Romans were a completely different people, and they feared the Celts, as the Celts were the one of the only peoples who successfully threatened Rome with destruction. It took 500 years for the Romans to neutralize the Celtic threat, and they didn’t even do a good job of that, as the Picts never stopped making life hard on them.

    The closest relatives of the Celts were the Germani, and they obviously shared a common origin in very ancient times.

    Swords, spears and javelins were the Celts’ weapons of choice, but bows and hammers were not at all.

    As a whole, this article is pretty bogus.

  5. Ok, got no idea what the hell is going on here, so I’ll correct a few comments.
    “The Celt’s biggest enemy were Christian monks”.
    Bullshit. The Celt’s biggest enemies were the Romans and other Celtic tribes.

    “Celts had more-or-less disappeared by the time the Vikings came about”.
    Well then explain the Welsh, Irish, Cornish, Scottish, Manx, Bretons and Galicians?

    “The Goidelic Celts of Ireland and the British Isles”.
    The Goidelic Celts were restricted to Ireland and Mid-Western Scotland. North and East of the Gaelic territory in Scotland was Pictish, and to the South was dominated by Britons, Brythonic Celts.

    “The whole of Europe was Celtic, and Rome was the core of Celtic civilisation”.
    Wherever the hell you got that idea from throw it back, it’s bullshit. Europe was Celtic dominated, but not all Celtic. You also have the Germanic, Italic, Hellenic and Slavic racial groups, to name a few. You can break those down into different tribes also, for example: Italics – Latins, Etruscans, Umbrians, Oscans. Also, as Bryce rightly said, the Romans were a completely different people, descended from a small Western Italic tribe called Latins. Rome was not the core of Celtic civilisation, in fact Rome was raided and besieged by Celtic tribes for centuries.

    Bryce, I do agree with you, this article is bogus.
