About two thousand years ago, the Iron Age Celts were a tribe of people who lived all over Europe. Around 500 BCE, the ancient Celts migrated and settled in modern day Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and the Isle of Man. They were a proud and honorable people. They lived in small farming communities. They loved beauty. They loved music. And they loved to make up stories, especially stories about the little people - fairies, elves, and leprechauns - stories we still enjoy today.
