Afraid I'm in the middle of 7 weekends peddling our games at the
Minnesota Renaissance Festival, so I'm just going to share some
tidbits of Celtic archeology in the news recently.

But, first some info about a book available online. It is viewable
online, or downloadable as two PDF documents.
"The Book of the Club of True Highlanders" 1881.
In two volumes. A record of the Dress, arms, customs, arts and
science; of the Highlanders. Compiled from printed and MS records; and
traditions; and illustrated with etchings of Highland Relics, and the
Keltic Vestiges of Great Britain and Ireland.
I haven't taken the time to read it yet and see what 19th century
inaccuracies it may contain, but it looks interesting and has some
nice illustrations.

quite a number of other books available online as well

Forteviot dig uncovering new story of Scotland's past
The colossal and exquisitely-preserved Iron Age broch uncovered near
Dunning is thought to have once been the seat of a Celtic chieftain.
Though just a fraction of the site has been excavated, the findings
have already been hailed by the Scottish Government and could have
"potentially far-reaching implications" for how we view our history.

Ancient London calling
The 1,000-year-old Tower of London and Westminster Abbey are
