WHAT DOES CELT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

celt

Celts

The Celts were an ethnolinguistic group of tribal societies in Iron Age and Medieval Europe who spoke Celtic languages and had a similar culture, although the relationship between the ethnic, linguistic and cultural elements remains uncertain and controversial. The exact geographic spread of the ancient Celts is also disputed; in particular, whether the Iron Age inhabitants of Britain and Ireland should be regarded as Celts has become a subject of controversy. The earliest archaeological culture that may justifiably be considered Proto-Celtic is the Late Bronze Age Urnfield culture of Central Europe, which flourished from around 1200 BC. Their fully Celtic descendants in central Europe were the people of the Iron Age Hallstatt culture named for the rich grave finds in Hallstatt, Austria. By the later La Tène period, this Celtic culture had expanded by diffusion or migration to the British Isles, France and The Low Countries, Bohemia, Poland and much of Central Europe, the Iberian Peninsula and northern Italy and, following the Gallic invasion of the Balkans in 279 BC, as far east as central Anatolia.
