and favorite tree, and their graVes contain
ed no other. About 54 B. C.. they were
divided into priests, •soothsavers, poets
(bards) and judges. The priests had charge
of the religious ceremonies, and their tem
ples,of worship were very singular. They

celebrated Stonehenge, On Salisbury Plain,
England.. In the Island of Anglesey,
Wales, there are also Druidical' temples.
or Arch-Druid 'of Britain. They had er
roneous ideas d• religion, had fires. sacred
to the Sun; and were so Cruel in their rites,
as to sacrifice human -being's to their gods.
They studied astronomy, and made great
proficiency in the science. By ihiS -mcans, l
great influence was:acquired over the minds',
of the - pCopleiand- - surrreti Ines,- in-practising ,
