History: It's believed that the Celtic culture started to evolve as early as 1200 B.C. The Celts spread throughout western Europe—including Britain, Ireland, France and Spain—via migration. Their legacy remains most prominent in Ireland and Great Britain, where traces of their language and culture are still prominent today.

Celtic cultures seem to have been diverse, with the use of a Celtic language being the main thing they had in common. Today, the term 'Celtic' generally refers to the languages and cultures of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany; also called the Celtic nations.

Celtic knots are a cultural phenomenon that exists within wedding ceremonies, tapestries, jewelry, tattoos, etc. These knots originated in Northern Italy and the South part of Gaul and went to Ireland in the 7th century. The original knots were broken and reconnected plaits showing.
