Celtic lands 
 

 

The area coloured blue had been settled by the Celts by around 200 BC. The date of their settlement of Britain is uncertain and may have taken place several centuries earlier. The Rhineland was a centre of iron production and skilled craftsmen made the twisted gold neck rings (torques, or torcs) found in the graves of their chieftains. Industrial skills included the production of good quality weapons and this helped their expansion.
