Celtic Invasions of the British Isles Pushes the Beaker People to the Ohio Valley

Celtic Invasions of the British Isles Pushes the Beaker People to the Ohio Valley





U.K. History Files,

       “It was this Beaker culture that was disrupted in the twelfth century BC, possibly by the arrival of the first wave Celtic settlers in Prydein during a period of intense disruption that took place as far afield as the Middle East, where the collapse of the Hittite empire was a major act in a century of turmoil. Although many would have stayed put and accepted their new Celtic overlords, some would have migrated westwards to avoid them, or were already in the west. Here they remained safe from Celtic domination for much longer, and when that domination finally came, it may only have been through a warrior elite.”
