Celts facts for kids
Leonius , Updated June 20, The Celts are a misunderstood bunch, shrouded in mystery, intrigue, and unfortunately lies. Frankly, nobody really knows where they came from. Some historians claim that there were Celts in Britain about B. However, it is generally accepted that the Celts started to migrate from Central Europe in B. They spread in all directions, that is, until they came face to face with the Romans. The problem was that their Roman neighbors were a single, unified empire, while the Celts were made up of dozens of tribes , who fought against each other as often as they joined together to fight the Romans.
The Celts were a large group of Caucasian tribes in Europe. They first appeared in the early Iron Age , around B. It's an interesting fact that the name 'Celt' comes from the Romans, and in fact, the Celts would never have used that word themselves. Their culture and genes spread through much of Europe, and by the time the Greeks and later the Romans started emerging, the British Isles and parts of western , southern and eastern Europe were Celtic - the most prominent Celtic tribes were in Gaul. The Celts spoke Celtic languages. Celtic society and technology, although not as advanced as the Romans, was far from being primitive for its time. The Celts lived a way of life based on ethical codes and honor codes and had developed a culture of their own, full of unique drawings, sculptures, jewellery, folklore , and building designs and techniques.
Hallstatt, Austria. A huge prehistoric cemetery was found at Hallstatt, Austria in where over 1, burials were excavated. The settlement is believed to date from BC to BC and contains the remnants of the aforementioned Urnfield Culture from which the Celts originated. However, new research suggests the Celts never lived in Ancient Britain. According to John Collis , an archaeology professor at the University of Sheffield, ancient islanders never called themselves Celts and it was instead a name reserved for those living in other parts of Western Europe. Collis also believes the Celts had settlements in Turkey; this is much further east than was previously believed.
Celtic history is steeped in mystery. Contemporaries and frequent enemies of the Roman Empire, these warriors were quick to fight, and vicious in attack. Still, Celtic culture was, and remains, fascinating to delve into.

Who were the Celts?
The Celts were made up of many different tribes, but their way of life was very similar. Living through the Iron Age period, they grew from mid-Europe and slowly spread out over much of the rest of Europe. Wherever they settled, Celts would set up farms and small villages. Their houses were called roundhouses made of wood or stone and contained just one big room. Being very skilled the Celts made all their own iron weapons and tools. Using bronze, silver and gold they loved to create beautiful objects.
The Celts were a very advanced society. In Britain, the Celts settled in areas such as Cornwall and Wales. The body of an Iron Age Celt was found in a bog in Cheshire in He is called the Lindow Man , and could have died as part of a sacrifice to the gods worshipped at that time. In Celtic society, people could tell how wealthy you were just by looking down at your feet.
