A bit like Spartans the Celts had high numbers of Warriors. the three counties which used to make up Glamorgan (one of the thirteen ancient historic counties would send out it's own army to defend the castle and people within the walls. The warrior path would have been the most common path for the Glamorgan ancient Celts. Most Celts then were born to be warriors. We are a warrior race.

Have a look at Graham Robb's book "The Ancient Paths". That will give you détails of the warriors amongst the Celts particularly in Gaul and Britain
