Brigantia

Pheasant, chicken, duck    


While living in northern England years ago, I learned the pre-Roman name for the region was Brigantes, taken from the Celtic goddess Brigantia.  She was also known as Brigid in Ireland.  Today it is retained as the name of an iron-age re-enactment group, an arts association and several Druid groups.  The name simply means High One, or Exalted One, and is associated with the life giving and fluid nature of water, with healing and prosperity, and strangely, with war.
