History of Great Britain in medieval times
1.Why were newcomers called the Beaker people about 2500 B.C.?
Newcomers have been called the Beaker People because of the shape of the pottery vessels which are so often found in their round barrow graves. The Beaker folk were farmers and archers, wearing stone wrist guards to protect their arms from the sting of the bowstring. They were also the first metalsmiths in Britain, working first in copper and gold, and later in the bronze which has given its name to this era.
2.Brief characterization of the Celtic.
The Iron Age is the age of the "Celt" in Britain. Over the 500 or so years leading up to the first Roman invasion a Celtic culture established itself throughout the British Isles.
For a start, the concept of a "Celtic" people is a modern and somewhat romantic reinterpretation of history. The “Celts” were warring tribes who certainly wouldn’t have seen themselves as one people at the time.
