Mercenary Naked WarriorsThe blessing of the gods is armour enough for any warrior.
A Celtic warrior, with battle-lust in his heart, was an intimidating sight. A warrior who went into battle naked, sure of the protection of his gods, only compounded the unease felt by a foe. Fighting naked was not a particularly original idea or, indeed, all that silly. It was quite practical, because dirty cloth could be forced into wounds causing all kinds of fatal infections. The Romans assumed it granted greater mobility. Celtic warriors, such as the Gaesatae, embraced the idea of fighting naked with gusto: both the Britons and Gauls were convinced of their own battle prowess. They also had absolute faith in Camulus, the god of war. A blessed warrior simply didn't need clothes.
