The Celts

  • Celtland International

  • For nearly three thousand years, people of Celtic heritage have evoked the magical words of timeless tales and conveyed them through literature, music, art and dance. For those who inherit this legacy, the gift of creativity seems so strong that it appears to be born into the soul and passed down through generations too numerous to count. Once dominating much of Europe north of the Alps as well as Britain and Ireland, the Celts are now generally thought of as being condensed into six small nations: Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Brittany and Cornwall. Yet Celtic culture has not diminished in size to become merely a tourist's idea of kilts, bagpipes, harps, step dancing and whiskey. Rather, a vast spectrum of tradition continues to renew and recreate itself.
