KARA

indo-european war kara punishment icon

Kara means simply "a punishment" and in general "war" or "an army" like Lithuanian "karas".

In Norse mythology there was a Valkyrie named Kara.

Hittite "karas" was probably a general term denoting the entire army, including fighters, support troops, and baggage and food animals on the move. This term may also have denoted a military camp.

The Celts were famous for their chariots and modern English words like "car", "carriage" and "carry" are ultimately derived from the native Brythonic language (Modern Welsh "cerbyd"). The word chariot itself is derived from the Norman French "charriote" and shares a Celtic root (Gaulish "karros").
