The Celts

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the definition of Celtic countries. It suggests that Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Brittany may all be termed ‘Celtic’; this is due less to the overarching heritage of their shared cultural past than to the effectiveness of modern Celtic ideologies, which have rendered the adjective ‘Celtic’ so nebulous and enigmatic in the minds of many people that it may be filled with virtually any content. The discussion then turns to Celtic languages today and political developments.

Keywords:   Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Celts, Celtic language
