The current view of the scholarship is that ‘Celtic’ migration
in the fourth and third centuries BC significantly impacted
on the formation of identities in central and southeastern
Europe. This work questions the notion of ‘Celtic’ identity
and patterns of ‘roaming tribal migrations’ in light of recent
criticisms, using post-modernistic notions of culture and
ethnicity as a fluent and socially constructed phenomena,
as well as contextual criticism of the Greco-Roman discourse
on barbarians that is presented in written sources
from antiquity. The ‘Celtic’ arrival in southeastern Europe
and the formation of identities with a ‘Celtic ethnic element’,
such as Scordiscan, are seen here in regional settings
and explained as a consequence of the process of hybridization
and restructuring of existing identities through a
selective acceptance of global cultural templates from the
Mediterranean and temperate Europe.
