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. Celtic tribes lived 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. They lived in small farming communities. They never built cities nor founded empires, even though they were fierce warriors.

The Celts were proud and honorable. The Celts may have invented soap. They loved music and storytelling, especially stories about the little people - fairies, elves, and leprechauns. Their culture lives on today in music, dance, story, and song.
