The importance of Keltentums from the iron age to the early middle ages. Everyone knows or has heard of them: the Celts. If you ask an average authentic stock on the next medieval market, associations came to Ireland, England and France. The Celts were Druids, have built the stone circles and were a large and upright people. But, was it really so? Who were the Celts do exactly? The great and Honorable people is at least the translation by celtael galli, the Latin name of the Celts consolidated through: “The noble”.

According to the scientific definition, the nobles were a language community, a religious community or a community of material. Is common to all definitions but, that unify in a culture, which exists since the iron age, and mainly in the Mediterranean region and Western Europe.

In the culture of the Celts as people or even Empire may be seen but much like in the Germanic area as a myriad of different tribes with cultural Similarities and similar Sprachstammen. That famous “classic” Celtic culture, from the many well preserved artefacts (Celtic jewelry, weapons, everyday objects), and that can be documented by the best ranges roughly seen from 600 BC to 30 BC. By two particularly rich finds in Switzerland (La Tene) and Austria (town) Hallstadt culture and the La distinction is made between the Tene culture. The settlement area of the Celts ranged to the present Slovenia at that time by the present South-East England. Of the Celtic culture before 600 BC there are virtually no artefacts or written traditions, however. The Celtic culture was a civilization with mature Handwerkstum, high artistry, and a mature economic and Handelssytems.

During the highest spread the Celtic culture area was larger than the later Roman Empire. In the last century before Christ, the Keltentum slowly disappeared due to the Roman conquest (who lived in Gaul “last) So actually, Celts”, Asterix was a Celtic ;)) and the simultaneous expansion of the Germanic tribes. Many finds, in particular Huglegrabern, which allow us a detailed picture of the culture of classical antiquity, most developed alongside the Greeks remain us. You can see, the Keltentum is much more than what we generally understand. Since the iron age, partly into the early Middle Ages dominated the Celtic culture, language, art and architecture of Europe. Not for nothing you can see them next to the Germans as our ancestors and root. Andre “Yekyawtun” bien
