Transcript of Celtic Civilization

The Celtics (KEL-TICS) Brought to you by Chris and Jake 390 BC: Celtic army successfully sacked and captured the Roman capital, holding it for 7 days before being driven out. 285 BC: The Celts invaded the region around Greece. They raided Thrace, Macedonia, Illyria, and Thessaly. They were finally stopped at Delphi, in the center of Greece. Around 285 BC: Three tribes of Celts crossed the Dardanelles into Asia Minor and established the region of Galatia in modern-day Turkey. 100 BC: Romans push from the south, Greeks from the north, until finally, Caesar of Rome defeats them in Gaul (52BC).
