According to the theories of that School, the Nordic noble warriors were the real creators of the Celtic, the Roman, the Greek, the Indian and other ancient civilizations. The statues of the Pergamene School denote that they physically belonged to the Nordic anthropological type, an element that was considered as a proof that most of the noble Galatian warriors of the ruling class were tall, with mainly blond, fulvous or reddish hair, light eyes, fair skin and other related physical characteristics. The referred theory has been overthrown long ago by the sciences of genetics, archaeology, physical anthropology and others, but it goes on influencing the general reader on whom the Celts are often represented almost in their entirety as typical Nordics.

Their entire country borders on the sea, and they do not differ much from the Gauls in customs. Very many who dwell farther inland do not sow grain but live on milk and flesh, clothing themselves in skins. All the Britons paint themselves with woad, which produces a dark blue color; and for this reason they are much more frightful in appearance in battle.
Ireland remains one of the last holdouts of the ancient Celtic languages once spoken throughout much of Western Europe. The Irish have fiercely maintained their unique character through the centuries, fighting off invaders and their horny roamings across our region rather unsuccessfully, at times. But how Irish are we genetically?
Britain and Ireland are so thoroughly divided in their histories that there is no single word to refer to the inhabitants of both islands. But geneticists who have tested DNA throughout the British Isles are edging toward a different conclusion. Many are struck by the overall genetic similarities, leading some to claim that both Britain and Ireland have been inhabited for thousands of years by a single people that have remained in the majority, with only minor additions from later invaders like Celts, Romans, AnglesSaxons, Vikings and Normans. The genetic evidence is still under development, however, and because only very rough dates can be derived from it, it is hard to weave evidence from DNA, archaeology, history and linguistics into a coherent picture of British and Irish origins.
