Giants of Scotland
The Scottish Gael 1876

The strong and robust bodies of the Celtae, their comeliness and great strength, have been remarked by all ancient authors who have had occasion to
notice them. These qualifications must have been produced by a sufficient supply of food, by their temperance, and by the freedom and activity of their
lives: hunting, pasturage, agriculture, and athletic amusements, being almost their sole occupation, when not engaged in warfare.

Both Celts and Germans were remarkably tall. They surpassed all other men in stature; and the largest, who were called Barenses, inhabited the
extreme and most cold parts. The lowest of the Germans were taller than the tallest Romans. Hieronymus says, Gaul always abounded in great and
strong men, who were wont to ridicule other people on their diminutive size. The Senones were particularly remarkable, being terrible for their astonishing
bigness and vast arms. The Insubres are described as more than human. The Britons appear to have exceeded even the Gauls in height. Tacitus
remarks the large limbs of the Caledonians; and some prisoners that Caesar carried to Rome, were exhibited as curiosities for their prodigious size.
Strabo indeed says, that he had seen British young men at Rome, who stood half-afoot above the tallest men; ..The Celts were, however generally
admired for their fine figures, as we learn from Polybius, Arrian, and other. Tacitus notices the advantage which this height gave the enemy on occasion of
crossing a river: whiletheRomans were in risk of being swept away,The Germans could keep themselves easily above the water. These people were
celebrated for their strength, their stature, and their sinewy bodies, the Romans being certainly of inferior size compared with the barbarians...

Tall as the Celtae generally were, the princes and chief men usually exceeded the common people, both in stature and strength; for beauty and
stateliness of person were generally characteristics of nobility in early society, and naturally proceeded from the constitution of a rude community, where
superior strength and warlike accomplishments are the only recommendations in a chief or leader, and as they intermarry with families enjoying similar
advantages, the race does not degenerate.
