Who are the Celts?
Although at one time they controlled nearly all of Europe and traded with the Orient and Asia Minor, today the Celtic world is limited to those who trace their ancestry and culture to the Seven Celtic Nations on the Atlantic coast of Europe. Those "nations' include Ireland (both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland), Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, Brittany on the coast of France and Galicia, a district of coastal Spain.

Once considered distantly related to Germanic or Teutonic and Scandinavian peoples, recent genetic research has proven the Celts and Basques to be the earliest settlers of Europe, tens of thousands of years earlier than previously thought. Recent archeological finds prove Celts once ranged as far as the western provinces of China.
