Celtic Jewellery

Cornwall, in the far South West of Britain, was home to many Celts who were driven away from the temperate midlands of Britain by invading European warriors.  It is in places such as Cornwall, Wales, Ireland and Scotland that the art of the Celts and ancient Britons has survived, carved into stone tombs and discovered on pottery fragments and ornaments. Celtic art is ornamental and meaningful, often involving complex symbolism, knotwork and spirals.
