Celtic Information

Celts is a modern term used to describe any of the European peoples of antiquity who spoke a Celtic language.

The historical Celts were a diverse group of tribal societies in Iron Age Europe. Proto-Celtic culture formed in the Early Iron Age in Central Europe . By the later Iron Age , Celts had expanded over a wide range of lands: to the British Isles , the Iberian Peninsula , much of Central Europe  and following the Gallic invasion of the Balkans in 279 BC as far east as central Anatolia .

The earliest direct attestation of a Celtic language are the Lepontic inscriptions, beginning from the 6th century BC. Continental Celtic languages are attested only in inscriptions and place-names. Insular Celtic is attested from about the 4th century AD in ogham inscriptions. Literary tradition begins with Old Irish from about the 8th century. Coherent texts of Early Irish literature, such as the Táin Bó Cúailnge , survive in 12th-century recensions.
