This paper studies both the spread of Celtic Christianity into Britain and the way in which the Celtic peoples reacted to the new religion. The study examines possible reasons for the Celts' acceptance of Christianity and examines the effect Christianity had on the beliefs of the Celts as well as on their daily lives. This paper looks at how Celtic Christianity manifests itself in the archaeological record, using evidence such as religious buildings, cemeteries, carved stones, and other forms of Celtic artwork that incorporate both Celtic and Christian aspects as documented in books and site reports. Descriptions and attributes of pagan and Christian artifacts from the Celts are also compared.
