Ricon -> used in tribes we would say were a part of England, Scotland and Wales, related to the French word ‘reine’ or in English ‘rein’, Celtic concept of governing responsibility. The chieftain could be questioned, people could disagree with the chieftains commands at times, this means that the leaders had to be very persuasive. Vercingetorix Caractacus (Carodoclg) Boudicca All famous leaders.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
