Land & Community Laws
- +1 public order
Ancient Celtic society was built on agriculture, so naturally many of its laws dealt with this important aspect of life. Clearly identifying the boundaries between farmland was paramount, so boundary pillar stones were erected. In Ireland, Cormac mac Cuileannanin’s ‘Sanas Chormaic’ called them ‘gallan,’ as they were first erected by the Gauls when they arrived there. This type of stone has also been found in England and Scotland, often with names engraved on them in ‘Ogham' script.
