Celts in Egypt

While researching the subject of Egypt for a ... sister site, Immortal Grace, we ran across this interesting little tidbit. Did you know there were Celts in Egypt? Yes! They apparently helped many of the Pharaohs from Ptolemy to Cleopatra, and even went there under Alexander the Great, if I am understanding correctly. Peter Berresford Ellis mentions the collaboration in his book, The Celtic Empire (aka The Celts)
and there is an overview of the subject at this fine site on Celtic history.

Well, we learn something new every day. :) I'll see if I can dig up more on this interesting subject for you; until then.... Enjoy the article above.

More to come...
