Curator Dr Julia Farley will talk about her work on the current exhibition; Celts: Art and Identity at the British Museum (24 September - 31 January).
The exhibition explores the art and objects made by the peoples of Iron Age Europe who were referred to by the Ancient Greeks as Keltoi. 
It also follows the story of how the words Celt and Celtic came to be redefined after 1500 to refer to the languages, histories and traditions of the modern Celtic nations.
