Thank you for the link.  I did not care for the amateurish illustration of Queen Cartimandua, but the essay was very good.  I have always felt myself a somewhat disloyal Celt for not cheering Boudica, but here we see the more proper response to Rome.  It's one thing to stand firmly on your culture and traditions, but to everything there is a season, and it also helps to have a knack for recognizing civilization when it arrives.  For the artwork, they should have used Olga Kurylenko in Centurion.

"The Greek geographer Ptolemy named the Brigantes as a people in Ireland also, where they could be found around what is now Wexford, Kilkenny and Waterford,[1] while another people named Brigantii is mentioned by Strabo as a sub-tribe of the Vindelici in the region of the Alps.[2]"
