History

The Celts were a group of tribal societies in Iron Age and Medieval Europe. They settled in Britain in around 500 BC and flourished until the Romans invaded in 55 BC. Most famous Celtic Queen was Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni Tribe who attacked London in AD 60 but eventually defeated in battle.
