Many people in the modern world recognise the word Celtic as a label for those of Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Cornelian origin, though the latter is not so much as was in the past. This may ring true in the modern era but in history the ‘Celtic’ peoples was not as small or as simple as that. Many may have heard of the Celtic peoples whilst skimming through history books or may have heard a small mention of a Celtic presence in different histories taught in Roman or Greek lessons, if so lucky even in ancient French, Spanish, and Eastern European history as well but as you are about to find out there is a lot more to the ‘Celtic’ peoples than many presume to know.
