In the days before written history, clues to everyday events can be found of the existence of a chariot-based civilization in the Western Plains of Russia and Mongolia. This civilization had apparently covered much of the Asian and Chinese as well as the Russian Western Plains. It was a pre-Celtic way of life. We do not know the names of the tribes or what language they spoke. How did a pre-Viking and pre-Celtic civilization develop into the later domination of the Vikings which was spread throughout Eastern Europe and Western Asia and Russia? Obviously, pre-Gaelic and pre-Viking legends and myth need to be consulted. The longboats of war as well as chariots play a powerful part in these adventures. In those days warrior queens as well as heroic Vikings played a large part. The latter-day wars organized by Queen Boadicea of Britain who drove the Romans out of the British Isles; Queen Maeve of Connaught who led the united armies of Ireland against Ulster were similarly heroic figures. These warrior queens were fieldmarshals and planners of war as well as chariot warriors. Perhaps the last of this line was Saint Joan of Arc. A statue of Queen Boadicea or Boudicca in her chariot still stands at Westminster Bridge in London. This tale is based on legends and myths surrounding the warqueens of the past.
