A lot of this is true.

However the association of the Sheela na gigs with a fertility cult is highly speculative.

The Slavs called the Norsemen "Rus"

I get the impression the basic assumptions of most of history are badly skewed, for example are references to "Rome" after 300 actually to Constantinople?

And what effects did a certain group who got down to Arabia, Madiera and probably Florida have?

Just a couple of points to make from my research which lead to about forty books addressing Celtic history. First of all - a 'celt' is a hammered tool. It was necessary in prehistory to hammer metals into tools. In some cultures they learned to alloy metals very much earlier than the Bible Narrative history and lie we are still being inundated with (Cradle of Civilization nonsense etc.). Rome religion allowed an expansion of Empire and a reduction of the sharing of power and spoils therefrom (After SPQR). See Dolni Vestonici and the two part kiln still used to make the Viking sword or Excalibur - Sword of Nuada. Rome excelled in propaganda and the making of epithets. In Sicily they made it illegal to give any name other than Roman to children - a study of memetics and NLP will help understand why the word Celt is so effective in maintaining this empire.

The 'keltoi' or ancient ones (Greek - DN of Homer) who colonized the Mediterranean and most of the world are called different names in different times and regions where they had trading zones long before Naucratis. These names include Osirian culture, Phoenicians, de Danaan and even those who colonized Polynesia and the western Americas - might figure most prominent. The Ainu (De is 'of" and D'Ainu is these almost mythic people which DNA research is still working on to see how Human Hybridization and breeding was done.), the Emerald Isles, Tara (many places) and more recent monastic Order of Iona all figure in this. Columcille at the Synod of Drum Ceatt is the high Druid who saved my namesakes from ignominy and worse.

The Synod of Whitby lead to the seizure of the Celtic Christian assets and formation of Britain (Brutti founders of Rome and the city where Pythagoras went). That made the Resurrection lie the final nail in the coffin of what Jesus (Iesa - Brotherhood) and his family developed and learned.
