and the Celts may have originated in the Indus Valley, and also the
Knossus Civilization of Crete, circa 2600 BC, plus perhaps the Sumerians,
who came by sea to Sumer around 3800 BC. Or... perhaps the Phoenician,
but NOT the original "Celts" were from the Indus Valley, and
today's Celts are actually a mixture of the Phoenicians plus a "pre-Celtic" group.
This and many other related questions remain open.

a complete unanimity of opinion among physical anthropologists that
the term Celt, if used at all, belongs to the brachycephalic (round
headed) darkish population of the Alpine (Swiss) highlands..... totally
lacking in the British Isles." -- W.Z. Ripley, Races of Europe.

anthropologists and classic historians have proved that the "Celts"
of history were the non-Aryan, round-headed, darkish small statured
race of south Germany and Switzerland, and that the "Celts"
properly so called are "totally lacking in the British Isles."
Thus, to speak as is so commonly done, of "Celtic ancestry,"
the "Celtic "temperament," and "Celtic fire"
amongst any section of the natives of these islands, is, according to
anthropologists merely imagination. "The term "Celt"
or "Celt" is entirely unknown as the designation of any race
or racial element of language in the British Isles, until arbitrarily
introduced there a few generations ago. Nor does the name even exist
in the so-called "Celtic" languages, the Gaelic, Welsh and
Irish. It is, on the contrary, the classic Greek and Latin title of
a totally different race of a totally different physical type from that
of the British Isles, and that the word was only produced there by unscientific
phlogistic and ethnologists some decades ago...." -- L.A. Waddell, "Phoenician
origin of Britons, Scots and Anglo-Saxons",
will thus be noticed that this "Celtic" area corresponds generally
in Scotland with the area in which the "Picts" suddenly disappeared,
and in whose place have suddenly appeared the people called "Celts".
In Ireland also the "Celtic" area generally corresponds with
that part of the country specially associated with the Bans, Van or
Early Feins, who, we have found, were Picts. "This new line of
evidence leads us to the conclusion that the early "Celts"
or "Kelts" were presumably the early Picts calling themselves
"Khaldis" or "Khaltis". They were a primitive people,
who, I find from a mass of evidence, were early "Chaldees"
or Galat (1) and "Gal (2)" of Van and Eastern Asia Minor and
Mesopotamia in the Stone Age." -- L.A. Waddell, "Phoenician
origin of Britons, Scots and Anglo- Saxons", p. 139.
tells us that England was settled by the Phoenicians who sailed to England
to mine the tin. The Phoenicians invaded England in 1103 BC and when
they arrived they found England to be inhabited by the Picts. Picts
were a small people and were considered aborigines. Over a period of
time the Phoenicians were assimilated. Today the small descendants of
this intermarriage between the Picts and the Phoenicians have been incorrectly
daring Phoenician pioneers were not "Semites" as hitherto supposed, but
were Aryans in Race, Speech and Script. They were, besides, disclosed
to be the lineal blood ancestors of the Britons and Scots -- properly
so-called, that is, as opposed to the aboriginal, dark Non-Aryan people
of Albion, Caledonia, Hibernia, the dusky small-statured Picts and kindred
"Iberian" tribes. -- p. vi of "The Phoenician Origin
of Britons, Scots and Anglo-Saxons" (1924)
It is incorrect
to say "British royalty". The royal line is English.
(The latter statement is severely disputed in a letter to the editor,
please follow this link to the related page where the counter argument
is profusely presented). The English are Anglo-Saxons from Germany.
They came to England about the 5th Century. The British are descendants
of the Britons from Phoenicia.
