There are also categories in Celtic, but the Isle of Man is classified as Insular Celtic even in Celtic.
In English it is called Insular Celtic and is the language originating from the British Isles.
Celtic has Gaelic and Brythonic, and Gaelic is in Isle of Man, Ireland, Scotland, Brythonic is in Breton, Cornwall and Wales.

Isle of Man language is included in Insular Celtic.

This is divided to distinguish it from the Celtic word of the continent.

The language included in Insular Celtic, Scottish Gaelic , Manx /Isle of man, Galway and Gaelic Britnik Cumbrian old Welsh Middle Welsh ,Welsh , South west Britnick, Bretonese, Cornish It is said to be.

Even if we say Celtic in one word, the range is quite broad and we can see that it is distributed in wide areas.
Also, it seems that it came to be called Insular Celtic as it was originated from being used in the Britain Islands.
However, it is also said that Celtic is a culture of a speaker who originally does not have character.

英語ではInsular Celticと呼ばれ、ブリテン諸島を起源とする言語です。

島嶼ケルト語Insular Celticに含まれてる言語は、 ゲール語、原アイルランド語、古アイルランド語、中期アイルランド語、アイルランド語、スコットランド・ゲール語、マン島語、ゴールウェイ・ゲール語、ブリトニック語、カンブリア語、古ウェールズ語、中期ウェールズ語、ウェールズ語、南西ブリトニック語、ブルトン語、コーンウォール語であるとされています。


It is said that Celts are ethnic groups using Celtic languages and they came across to Europe with horses and wheeled rides (carriages and tanks) from the grasslands of Central Asia, there is no clear evidence about when and how Celtic people came to the Britain Islands in any era.

However, in the common opinion in the Britain Islands, it seems that the theory that the indigenous people were conquered by the Celtic warrior group with iron weapons seems to be persistent.
On the other hand, different theories have emerged from genetic research in recent years. It is said that indigenous people of the Neolithic Age have been altered by the cultural influence of continental Celts.




We do not know about the old days. There is a fact that there are many things that we do not know.
But one obvious thing is that on Britain Island before it was uniformed to the Roman Empire; there was a society of Celtic tribes with iron weapons on a tank.

In the first century AD, England and Wales came to be dominated by the Roman Empire.
From that influence, the Celts in this region will be Romanized.
However, when the Germanic people invaded Gallia in the 5th century, the Roman Empire abandoned Britannia's control and made the army retreat to the continent.

This seems that it is believed that the Roman civilization was definitely forgotten under the rule of Anglo - Saxon, as the Anglo-Saxon people crossed the sea and invaded England by striking this gap.

However, even on the same Britain Island the language of Celt remained in the western part of Wales.

It is said that this is probably affected by not being completely conquered from the Roman Empire and from Anglo-Saxon.

Before the cultural areas of ancient Rome and Germania expanded, it seems that the Celtic civilization has occupied most of the important parts of Europe.
Considering from this theory, it is also convincing that the origin of the name Celtic originated that the ancient Greeks called Western Europeans Keltui (stranger) around 600 BC.




In any case, since Scotland, Ireland, and the Isle of Man are areas that are said to have not even undergone Roman rule, the theory that the characteristics of Celtic = Gaelic and Celtic culture remained strong was common It is becoming.

It is also said that the Celts of Cornwall at the western end of England was pressured by Anglo-Saxon, moved across the sea to the Brittany peninsula of the continent, and became a Breizh/Breton. (Breizh/Breton / Northwest of France. During the Roman Empire was called Roman almorica).

From these historical backgrounds, it is mostly seen that the Celts of the continent have been destroyed or made Romanized, but the Insular Celtic remains as six Celtic countries.

The six Celtic countries are names that have distinctive Celtic languages and indicate Celtic culture characteristics such as art, history, music, dance, literature, and so forth, and there is no actual Celtic country.

These six Celtic countries are called Celtic countries in the sense of nation.
The word “nation” is originally used as a word meaning "people" that share a common traditional identity and culture and is identified as a historical area, country, or region, so the sovereign state it is not synonymous with.

The six regions recognized as Celtic countries are Brittany(Breizh), Cornwall(Kernow), Ireland(Eire), Scotland(Alba), Wales(Cymru) and Isle of Man(Mannin).

In these six areas, Celtic languages are still being spoken or are being spoken until the modern day, so they are called Celtic countries.

In addition to these six, Minho, Douro, Tras-Os-Montes in the mountainous areas adjacent to Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and Galicia in Portugal in the northwestern part of Spain have been identified as Celts from their region's unique cultural characteristics.

TT-RACE has been held in Isle of Man, one of these six Celtic countries.
This RACE is done in history and scale of the oldest in the world, the longest in the world.
RACE is also an alias for Nation, so I do not think it is a coincidence.
I feel great inevitability. This may be magic.

ケルトの国として認識される6つの地域は、ブルターニュ(Breizh)、コーンウォール(Kernow)、アイルランド (Eire)、スコットランド(Alba)、ウェールズ(Cymru)、そしてマン島(Mannin)です。



この6つのケルト国の一つであるマン島で開催されているTT-RACE。 このRACEは世界最古、世界最長という歴史と規模で行われています。
RACEとはNationの別称でもあるので、とても偶然とは思えませんね。大きな必然を感じてしまいます。 これがマジックなのかもしれません。
