A new exhibition on the story of the Celts opened at the British Museum Thursday, tracing the shifting use of the term through artworks covering 2,500 years of history from Scotland to Spain. "Celts: Art and Identity" examines the origin and usage of the term, which was first coined by the ancient Greeks to refer to barbarians from the north, and later used for the Celtic revival of the last 300 years in the British Isles. In around 500 B.C., the Greeks called their northern barbarian neighbors "Keltoi".While Greek society was structured around cities, Celts lived in farmsteads and small village communities."Celts" is the fourth in a series of major British Museum exhibitions, following shows on the Vikings, the Ming dynasty and beauty in Greek sculpture.
