Since the ancient Celts left no written records of their own we truly don't know much of anything about what the Druids believed or how they practiced. The only information we have on them comes to us through the writings of the Greeks and Romans who were there enemies, thus what is said must be suspect.

Modern Druidry, also known as Neo-Druidry is another thing entirely. It is a modern philosophy based loosely on what people think they know about ancient Druids. There is a good outline of the beliefs of r nDraocht Fin, one of the larger modern Druid Traditions that can be found at https://www.adf.org/about/basics/beliefs.html Alternatively you can look at the beliefs and practices of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD) which is the oldest of the modern Druid Traditions at http://www.druidry.org/druid-way

Lark does the group you mentioned (the one that is the oldest functioning group of neo-druids), do they try to stick to their old ways and observe the old traditions as much as possible for reasons of authenticity? I've been looking around the internet for quite some time, and so far all I've found is the neo versions, but very little documented about the ancient druids, but thank you for pointing that out because now I see partly why it wasn't documented, thanks Lark!
