Celtic Britain

Hey everybody,

we are Patrick & Judith from Celtic Britain. We live in the Netherlands and we started a Dutch informative website two years ago. Now we would like to broaden our horizon with a re-enactmentgroup. We re-enact a band of Gallowglasses from the Isles around 1314, but we need still very much information and material.

Greets,

It's a reasonable place to start - there are a number of discussions on Gallowglass on the Medieval forums. There are also a few decent books of late which have some good backstory & archeological information. Do you have any specific requirements ?

At the moment not yet. Could you give me some titles of books with background information?

Thanks in advance.

"The World of the Gallowglass", edited by Sean Duffy is a good start.

At this moment we do extensive research to the Gaelic culture on the Scottish westcoast. In this way we try to create a view on our re-enactmentperiod, 1306-1328. There is too little interest in the Gaelic culture and the important role that our ancestors played in history. When we have finished the research, we will translate it to English and make a list of sources.

Gallowglass

There are a number of good threads on this discussion board on this subject. Use the search function and type "Gallowglass" and most of them should come up. Also try the Irish spelling. Enjoy!
