The premise is basically that the Celts as a people didn’t exist and are a modern invention.

Invented mainly by those the English subjugated over the centuries (Welsh, Scots, Irish, Cornish).

To paraphrase Phoneshop

“If a man say he a ting, he a ting”

Well worth seeing, finishes at the end of January, go!
