The Gauls, the Bretons, and the Gaels; they are all Celts. Before the Romans tramped across Europe after 27 BCE and asserted their dominion, the prominent people were the Celts.
When historians first started researching the Celts, they assumed that they originated in Ireland, Wales, England, and Scotland because of the strong legacy left behind. However, it is now thought that they came from Central Europe and spread out for trade. The Celts were made up of many tribes, each with slightly different traditions. The Celtic rituals and culture are still visible all over the world today.
