List of Celtic tribes

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The list of Celtic tribes is a listing of the tribal groups of the Celts known by name through the ancient authors, the archaeological finds and the modern Celtology .

The Celts were not a single people, but a group of peoples related in language , religion , mythology , art and culture , but not necessarily genetically. The main division of the Celtic peoples differentiates between mainland Celts and island Celts. In addition to this division, the ancient Celts were also divided into larger tribal groups or tribal leagues as well as into smaller sub-tribes (Gaue) and client groups .
