Ok, after reading the messages in this thread, here are the files in

"Celtic" is, as others have pointed out, a rather nebulous term. In the
Florilegium, I tend to use it for the peoples of Gaul and the British
Isles that the Romans came in contact with and the ancestors to the 
later Irish and Scottish peoples. But since the NTIF seems to be using
a much broader definition, I've tried to cover some of these peoples

I want to thank those that have tried to answer Lady Maria de Vasquez's
question. Some of these messages will eventually find their way into
the Celts-msg file for future inquires of this nature.
