Episode 117a: Introduction to the Ancient Celts

Description: I am very excited to be joined by Dr. Carly McNamara of the University of Glasgow to begin our series on the history of Christianity in the British Isles among the Celtic people. In this series we are going to delve way into the ancient past and move into the medieval period. Dr. McNamara will discuss archaeology, textual evidence and more to give us an in-depth look into the culture, religion and language of this fascinating people. In today’s episode, we will look at who are the “Celts,” where did they come from and what do we know about their origins.
