Still mulling over the holiday (will get back to Ruso 4 in a minute). One thing I think I learned was how clueless you are in a society where you don’t have the language. Things happen that you have no way of interpreting or understanding, and other things, possibly of enormous significance, probably pass straight over your head unnoticed.
All of which leads me to wonder how much the Romans really understood about the Britons and their customs when they came over here, even with the help of interpreters. It’s such a pity that we don’t have any account of how the Druids saw themselves before the Roman Army – allegedly – wiped them out.
