English: Galician Celtic Stele for the deceased, called Apana, presumably an aristocrat of the tribe of Celtic Supertamricos. Second Century of the Common Era. The Celtic languages form a branch of the larger Indo-European family. By the time speakers of Celtic languages enter history around 400 BC, they were already split into several language groups, and spread over much of Western continental Europe, the Iberian Peninsula, Ireland and Britain.

"The Celts were a southern European people of Indo-Aryan origin who first surfaced
in Bohemia and travelled west in search of the home of the sun. Science has recently established their basic blood group as 'O', in keeping with their modern descendants, which designates them as a separate race from the aboriginals of the southern Indian subcontinent, where the 'B' blood group predominates.
For at least 500 years, and dating to as early as perhaps 300 BC, there have been written accounts of an Egyptian origin for the Gaelic people of north western Spain, Ireland and Scotland. Although these written accounts are often dismissed as fanciful mythology, the fact that they exist from different eras, locations and sources, merits some further investigation.

The Irish and the Scots Are From the Same Tribe
Ireland used to be divided up into five parts, the five fifths. There was a northern fifth, Ulster, a western fifth, Connaught, a southern fifth, Munster, an eastern fifth, Leinster and a middle fifth, Mide. Click here to see a map of the five fifths. The Ulster Cycle is a set of stories which are grounded in the five fifths. Indeed, they are primarily concerned with C Chulainn, the Ulster hero and his king, Conor Mac Nessa in their wars against the king and queen of Connaught, Ailill and Maeve. These figures play a prominent role in the what may be the greatest story of the Ulster Cycle, the Tin B Cailnge, The Cattle Raid of Cooley. Sometime after 300 AD, Ulster became steadily less important in status among the five farthings and the ruling family of Mide, the U Nill Sons of Niall started to take over large parts of Connaught and most of Ulster. A similar move was made in Muster by the ruling family of Munster, the Eoganachta family. Thus was Ireland divided almost entirely into two halves. The people of Ulster were pushed to a small coastal strip bordering the Irish Sea. The kingdom changed it's name to Dl Riata. Yet eventually Dl Riata fell under the rule and influence of the U Nill. This family, not content with the boundary presented by the sea, launched colonies across the Irish Sea into then Pictish Britain. Thus was Scotland founded, for it was these U Nill that the Galician Celtic Stele: Apana Ambo/lli f(ilia) Celtica /Supertam(arica) / [j] Miobri /an(norum) XXV h(ic) s(ita) e(st) /Apanus fr(ater) f(aciendum) c(uravit).
