Many scholars cannot rule out the possibility of ships navigating the oceans as long ago as the Franchithi Caves

Celts when Caesar had this technology back then. Some people think that knowledge once gained is never lost, but

this is far from true. Barry Fell was a Harvard Professor of Oceanography before he found the bug that would reveal

the truth. Some mock Fell as “self-taught” on subjects like Ogham (like Wiseman in the Journal of Archeology in the

2001 article ‘Camelot in Kentucky’). The truth is, Fell took one of the only minor courses available at Edinburgh

University at the time. Who can learn the truth from the academics who hide it? His name has been tainted by

Here is some of the story of his suffering, presented for more reasons than the need to reinforce the existence and

loss of Celtic watercraft technology. The rise and fall of Celtic sea power has been strangely neglected {Although the

Celtic inscriptions in the Americas, historians, and archaeologists aroused much skepticism. A typical comment was ‘I

can’t say I’ve ever heard of Celts being sailors’. Those who remember that Julius Caesar described the Britons as

mostly naked, carrying iron torus around their necks, {Torktum, or Manawa, is an ancient se xtant known to have

animal’s skin is draped over their shoulders, imagine that the Britons have nothing better to cross the water than one-man cowards.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Caesar’s ‘De Bello Gallico’ book III. Much of his book is devoted to

Combined Gallic and

British naval guns made up an immensely outnumbered force, so Caesar tells us that there were no fewer than 220

ships larger and superior in construction than the opposing Roman navy under Admiral Brutus. These Celtic ships,

the Atlantic Ocean ‘vasto atque aperto maria, “in the vast open sea,” as Caesar put it.

Does it occur to you that these ships were used on such voyages to America?  The wind subsided, and the

Roman galleys hooked Celtic gear and the sails boarded them. Caesar made a pact (as it was his habit) with his

ancestors’ cousins who couldn’t control everything. He gave them full citizenship of Rome, which they founded after defeating the Tarquin kings of Etruria. Thus, the nature of Catholicism and the Anglican church has a

long and miserable history, as they forbade the Druids and placed bounties on their heads. Can you see why we think

the Toltecs or others in America might have Druidic origins?

of the native navy. It seems that the war against Veneti was the end of Celtic naval power in classical times. Except

for the periodic acts of violence by British chiefs like Queen Boadicea.
