Anglo-Celtic

The Anglo-Saxon and the Celtic age both created a historical impression that continues to influence the traditions and culture of modern society. The fusion of both Anglo-Saxon and Celtic idealism gave birth to the term Anglo-Celtic. The word 'Anglo' is taken from the ancient Germanic group of the Anglo-Saxon. This group inhabited most parts of England, Britain. The other word "Celtic" in Anglo-Celtic refers to the group of individuals residing in Celtic Nation, including Wales, Scotland, Cornwall, and Isle of Man with the exception of the Bretons.

Anglo-Celtic is used to refer to the racial group of individuals who have either or both British and Irish descent. Anglo-Celtic does not only refer to one's bloodline, but it can also be used to describe a cultural class that lives up to the same ideologies of both the British and Irish culture. This term is popularly used in Australia where more than 80% of its people are said to be Anglo-Celtics. Some of them are also from other countries including New Zealand, United Sates and Canada.

The Anglo-Celtic, as a cultural class, had been an issue to most people that still retain their full Celtic ancestry. Some people claim that they are without the Anglo blood as they opposed the German culture. This is more evident in Europe where the English culture still remains unaccepted by people with pure Celtic background. Some people may also say that the rise of the Anglo-Celticism is a mere ploy to diminish the original Celtic culture and turn in into something English in nature.
