Synopsis by Tracie Cooper

Known as "Keltoi" by the ancient Greeks, the enigmatic Celtic people proved an integral part of European history. Like its predecessor, this production revolves around the rich and varied journey of the Celts, this time in regards to their role in the aftermath of the fall of the Roman Empire. As England suffered continuous invasions from Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, and Normans, a violent struggle for the remaining Celtic strongholds -- Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany -- was irrevocably set in place, and would make a profound impact for decades to come.
