The mystery surrounding the origins of the Celtic people could be unravelled by a new three-year project.

The University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies in Aberystwyth has received £690,000.

The centre said many still believed the Celts spread from Iron Age central Europe between 750 and 100 BC.

Prof John Koch, the language project leader, was asked by Gareth Lewis on BBC Radio Wales Good Morning Wales whether it was still believed that that was the case.
