Synopsis by Alice Day
Regarded as a barbaric people by many European groups, the Celts were to exert an important influence on Western civilization. Colgate Salisbury narrates this episode in the series, which provides information about early tribes and their effects on later cultures. In Ancient Tribes: The Celts, the region in which they held dominance for so long is shown, an area covering much of Europe. Celtic influence is evident in the language and art of later populations. As with many warring tribes, the need for high-quality battle tools produced technically superior weapons.
