Ancient Order of Druids

Categories: Religion

The Ancient Order of Druids sprung out of a surge of interest in the 18th century in all things related to ancient Britain, such as Stonehenge. Henry Hurle organised the Ancient Order along the lines of freemasonry but, these Druids, they are a disputatious bunch and a splinter group, the United Order of Druids, was formed in 1839. By WW1 there were 5 Druid sects and we lose patience with them. The Picture Source website provides some interesting information.
