clothing (split roughly into Hallstadt and La
Tene) in response to a question on H-Costume.
They don't really cover the Galatians
specifically, but might be useful. I've put them
in the files section in a folder titled
"Tangwysty's files" since they're rather long
(and doubtless others will be interested). These
are rather quick-and-dirty and are more intended
as a starting point for research than as a
complete source in themselves.
Quite frankly, if they're filming next weekend,
then unless they have a large budget and staff
who do nothing else in the next week (and start
with a certain familiarity with the historic
context) then I'm not sure how much help _any_
information is going to be.

- Sorry for not including more of that sort of information--I'd gotten the
e-mail asking for help in the morning as I was tidying up before an
all-peers meeting for the Principality (Tir Righ in An Tir) and didn't have
time to look at the files he'd attached and knew that if I didn't ask just
then then I wouldn't get another chance to ask at all. (that hurry is also
why I didn't remember to go back and add a subject line--my apologies to
whichever moderator had to add one for me). I've forwarded Tangwystyl's
(thank you!!!!) answer to the person who asked me for help, hopefully that
will be useful information for them. I'm on digest mode, so I won't know
till later if anyone else replied (yes, I *could* log onto Yahoo to check,
but frankly, haven't the time/energy while trying to finalize visas and
shipping and stuff for my move back to Lochac)
