Which Celts came to Ireland?

Current academic opinion favours the theory that the Celts arrived in Ireland over the course of several centuries, beginning in the late Bronze Age with Celts of the early iron-using Hallstatt group of people, to be followed after 300BC by Celts of the La Tène cultural group which formed within the Hallstatt group.

When did Celts come to Ireland?

1000 B.C.
From as far back as the 16th century, historians taught that the Irish are the descendants of the Celts, an Iron Age people who originated in the middle of Europe and invaded Ireland somewhere between 1000 B.C. and 500 B.C. That story has inspired innumerable references linking the Irish with Celtic culture.

What language did the Bell Beaker Culture speak?

Back to Beaker language. I think Beakers spoke a single language or intelligible dialects. I’m confident that that language was Indo-European based on how the child cultures develop in the EMBA in Central Europe, particularly those descending into Bronze Age Italy.

Who lived in Britain before Beaker Folk?

Cheddar Man, Britain’s oldest complete skeleton, belonged to this group. He lived around 10,000 years ago.
