Oppenheimer in his book 'Origins of the British (Celts)' has been able to show the genetic make up of the Celtic people of Britain has a genetic correlation between themselves and the people of North Spain.

The Celts (/ k ɛ l t s, s ɛ l t s /, see pronunciation of Celt for different usages) are a collection of Indo-European peoples in parts of Europe and Anatolia identified by their use of the Celtic languages and other cultural similarities. The history of pre-Celtic Europe and the exact relationship between ethnic, linguistic and cultural factors in the Celtic world remains uncertain and. The book examines the different tribes, the Hallstatt and La Tène periods, as well as Celtic survival in western Europe, the Gallic Wars, military life, spiritual life, slavery, sexuality and Celtic art. Currently the focus of a major exhibition at the British Museum in London – Celts: art and identity – the Celts .   Celtic Hegemony In Europe And Beyond At Its Height. At one time the Celtic peoples were spread over large parts of Europe and beyond. It is known that by around BC, the Celts' influence and power stretched from the Atlantic seaboard in the west of Europe and included parts of the Iberian peninsula, the islands of Britain and Ireland, much of Western and Central Europe, part of .   The Celts were a distinct ethnic group made up of tribes spread across Europe. They shared similar languages, traditions, religions, and cultural practices and were known for their fierceness in battle and the fact the Romans perceived them as a culture of the name given to them by the Romans (Galli) translates to barbarian.
