When Did Celtic Art Begin?

Broadly speaking, the earliest Celtic arts and crafts appeared in Iron Age Europe with the first migrations of Celts coming from the steppes of Southern Russia, from about 1000 BCE onwards. Any European art, craftwork or architecture before this date derives from earlier Bronze Age societies of theUrnfield culture (1200-750 BCE), or the Tumulus (1600-1200 BCE), Unetice(2300-1600 BCE) or Beaker (2800–1900 BCE) cultures.
