Recent evidence that Druids possibly committed cannibalism and ritual human sacrificeperhaps on a massive scaleadd weight to ancient Roman accounts of Druidic savagery, archaeologists say.After a first century B.C. visit to Britain, the Romans came back with horrific stories about these high-ranking priests of the Celts, who had spread throughout much of Europe over a roughly 2,000-year period.

Caesar of course being one of the all time great respectors of human life.
There was no such remake. It was just a horrible nightmare/bad drug trip you must have had.
Yeah I'm in denial.
Actually last week Aust TV ran the two versions back to back. Verdict Worst. Remake. Ever.
Despite Cage being in the right, and against a mob of moonbat feminists, he was such a jerkass about it (dude, did you just kick Joan of Arc in the face?) that burning to death was what he deserved. That he was a wimpering coward about it was the cherry on the top.
Whereas, Woodward's character looked a bit of a prig, and the happy hedonistic pagans were so reasonable about their beliefs that you were on their side until it came clear to where those beliefs had led. And Sgt Howie's death, crowning moment of awesome: that is how a man dies.
Also: Naked. Britt. Ekland.
I don’t know if it is fair to say that Roman society was really all that much more bloodthursty than we are.
We are not quite up to the Romans yet, but recent events seem to indicate that we are about up to the later 2nd century BC, and are in a galloping hurry to reach the first century BC.
It's said that by the time Caesar was finished in Gaul he left one million dead, another million enslaved and the remaining million paralyzed by shock and horror, all in a war for his own personal aggrandizement.
Human sacrifice and ritual cannibalism was widely spread if not widely practiced in all of human history.
The Greeks, those paragons of rationalism, had sacrifice in their cultural DNA before their golden age.
Jehovah’s testing of Abraham before letting him off the hook with a ram may have marked a change-over in the cultural practices of the ancient Jews.
If what they were doing repelled the Romans, it was probably pretty savage.
I doubt that there was any need to “justify” imperialist actions by Caesar as long as he was wining and bringing back lott and plunder.
True, but the romans didn't eat other humans
Whole different level
Perhaps, but they enjoyed watching wild animals kill and eat humans.
