Travellers' Tales from home and around the world: their destinations, experiences and issues arising…
CELTIC LANDS AND LANGUAGE
Celts are often thought of as the race that inhabited post Roman Britain but were forced out to the western edges of the continent by the arrival of the Germanic tribes.

How much of this Celtic world has survived and what do the modern Celtic nations now share in terms of culture and language?
