The Celts were fierce warriors. But they never founded an empire. They never built cities. They lived in small farming communities. Their culture lives on today in music, story, and song.
Who were the Iron Age Celts?
The Iron Age Celts were a tribe of people who lived all over Europe about two thousand years ago. At one time, you could find tribes of Celts in modern day Spain, France, northern Italy, and as far east as Russia. Around 500 BCE, the ancient Celts migrated and settled in modern day Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and the Isle of Man.
