The ancient history of Poland is more connected with Goths and other local tribes than with the Celts. However, during many excavations archaeologists have discovered links between the modern territory of Poland and old Celtic tribes.

Thanks, Pieter. I finally took time to read a bit about the Celts. I also recognized the pictures from the archeological museum in Krakow of the Celtic dress. That is part of a larger display showing residents over many millennia in the Krakow area. All in all the museum puts on a superb display. They had a rather thorough and expensive book on the exhibit, and I find it well worth the cost. It is a great reference, and it covers an amazing history from 37,000 BC (or is it CE?) Most amazing is the fluctuation in density of settlements over that vast period of time, patterns of dense settlement resembling the density of today varying with periods of sparse settlement. It is easy to imagine that land laying fallow for a few hundred years would be looked upon as virgin land by new settlers, and be the source of thinking of themselves as "first to tread this land".
