"...it is difficult to put a precise figure on nominal membership (a declared religious persuasion) rather than active participation (regular attendance at a place of worship). For example, the total Christian population of the U.K. was estimated to be 37,394,000 in 1995, but it is estimated that the population who regularly attend church services (who would be classified as practicing Christians) is just over 6,000,000.

To... traditional [astronomical] meanings at Stonehenge, one adds the obvious deductions from its structure: circular dancings, processions, five-fold teachings, a death-and-resurrection cult of the sun, and male and female emblems. These signs give a sketch-outline of a cult, remarkably like the Druidic ideas. "
Druidism United Kingdom - - - - -55 B.C.E. King, John. The Celtic Druids' Year: Seasonal Cycles of the Ancient Celts. London, UK: Blandford (1994), pg. 40. "If we suppose, as there seems good evidence for doing so, that Druidism was especially important in the British Isles, then the year 55 BC marks a definite boundary between one phase and the next in our history of Druidic thought and practice. Before then, Druidism flourished in the British Isles free of outside influence, from a beginning lost in the mists of antiquity. After that date, when Caesar sent the first punitive Roman expeditions to discourage the British Celtic missionaries who had been supporting the resistance in Gaul, British Druidism found itself in contact with, and to varying and uncertain degree in conflict with, the ideology of Rome, a contact that was destined to last for 500 years. "

"With Caesar's conquest of Gaul begins the second phase of the history of the Celts. Druidism in unconquered Ireland and the furthest reaches of the Scottish highlands and islands remained unaffected by Rome. Brythonic Druidism, in what is now England, Cornwall and Wales (and, subsequently, Brittany) was affected by Roman influence, but to varying degree. Very often, indigenous Celtic gods continued to be worshipped alongside important Roman gods, with little apparent difficulty. "

It is said that in 1245 a gathering was held with representatives from many parts and the objects of the Order were agreed. A grove or group was founded, the Mount Haemus Grove which still exists. Druids appear, together with Rosicrucians and Freemasons, in the mixture of mystical-occult societies of 18th century London; these were largely influenced by the mystic Jacob Boehme. "

If we take the first phase, the phase of Druidism unaffected by Rome previously described, as being from undefined date, but perhaps even as early as approximately 900 BC, up to the first Roman landings in Britain in the first century BC, the second phase is a much shorter period--the 115 years from 55 BC to AD 60, which point we have just reached.
