Beginning in the 8th century, the Celts faced repeated invasions: first by the Vikings and then by the Normans. Weakened by these conflicts, and the ever-changing geopolitical landscape of the continent, they found their culture being absorbed by their powerful neighbors France and England. This film explores the state of Celtic culture from the time of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century to the last traces of their culture in 19th-century Ireland?
