|THE HORSE, IRON, CHARIOT and THE COMING OF EPONA; THE RISE OF ARYAN MILITARY SUPREMACY
(Ref: The Celts, The People Who Came Out Of The Darkness by Gerhard Herm from Germany, but based on research by the Soviet Academy Of Sciences just before the collapse of the USSR. The book explains the interesting story of just how this came to be.
The Confederation of Aryan Tribes in Central Asia eventually began to break up. Migrations in several different directions began to take place. Into Sinkiang in northwest China. These being portions of the Celtic tribes. To Hokkaido the northernmost island of Japan. Where Aryans intermarried with the Aboriginal inhabitants of Japan to produce the modern day Ainu. Others into Tibet. What became known as Persia/Iran was founded by Aryan immigrants. Others went to Mesopotamia. I heard Saddam Hussein once, in a public talk, explain that he was Aryan and not an Arab. No wonder the Israeli’s hated him so. He stood in the way of their expansion. Others went to Egypt (These I will cover in a later or next installment).
Now back to Central Asia. At some point the Aryans learned how to smelt Iron. This enabled them to produce Iron Weapons, principally axes. This gave them a major advantage over everybody else who were armed with Bronze Weapons. The Philistines were an Aryan People armed with these Iron Weapons. The Aryans got nicknamed “Axemen” due to their use of Iron Axes.
A Higher Spirit appeared among the Celtic Tribes living in Central Asia. She was called Epona (Where we get the word Pony) by most, but Mare (Where we get the name for a female horse) by others, and Rhiannon by still others. She introduced these Early Celts to those she called her children. THE HORSES. As partners rather than food sources as they had been. She showed that she also controlled earthquakes. So it was a classic case of, “I can be your best friend or your worst enemy.” She made it plain that the Equines were to be treated as Sacred Animals and no longer as food sources, or else. The partnership, for that was what it was, with The Horse spread from the Celts to the other Aryan Tribes still in Central Asia and from them to the neighboring Mongolian Tribes to the east. Some Mongolian peoples maintain this story among themselves to this day. That the one who brought The Horse resembled a White European Woman and the first people to have The Horse were their White Neighbors. We see here the origins of the Asiatic, geographically speaking, Horse Cultures.
The Chariot had already been invented, but only as a utility vehicle. What the Aryans did new was make the Horse the motive power. What was produced was a weapons platform which was used much like modern tanks. So an Aryan Army now consisted of Chariots and Horse Archers. Armed with Iron Weapons. With potential enemies being on foot and still using Bronze Weapons it was a foregone conclusion what the results of conflict would be.
The Aryans who had settled in Tibet would also adopt the same military system previous to their invasion and conquest and eventual governance of the Indian Subcontinent.
These Celtic Aryan Tribes were noted for a couple of particularly interesting things which would in time end up being of major importance.
Women were treated equally with men before the law which was always oral. Maintained by an order of Druids known as Brehons (Lawgivers).
Men and women of a tribe elected their chiefs from all the various male and female members of a tribal royal family.
People who didn’t like how a tribe was being run were free to leave if they so chose and go their own way.
We see the beginnings here of the ferociously independent Celtic Spirit.
Heil Hitler deva!
