4. A FEAST OF PLENTY
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR MY NEOLITIC CELT STORY PLEASE VISIT:
The aged pass the afternoon in their shady spot watching the village prepare the kill for that night’s feast. As the men dig a sizable fire pit and the children organize themselves to the job of gathering firewood, the women sear the hair off the beast. Once its flesh is bare they skillfully slice its belly open to remove the unsavoury internal organs. These cavities are then stuffed with root vegetables and aromatic plants.
The men have built a sturdy spit and the children have filled with fire pit with a large pile of wood. Everyone gathers about as the fire is lit, blazing up high into the afternoon sky. Once the wood burns down to a powerful red glow the beast is hauled over and raised up on the spit. Almost immediately its skin starts crackling in the intense heat. The scent of hearty flesh cooking reaches even the aged, resting quietly in their comfortable spot.
The children, catching the sense of excitement from the adults, are running around in a very unruly manner. The aged can see that tonight will be a frenzy of feasting and debauchery, ending late, and causing a difficult start to the day tomorrow. There is much clucking and muttering under the breath of the group of aged as this exact reality comes to pass.
