Celtic language

The paucity of written British from Roman Britain is an intriguing feature of the CelticLatin
interface, and Jackson’s dismissive statement requires re-evaluation following
recent research and finds. The ever-expanding corpus of Continental Celtic is testament
to the relative ease with which Celtic speakers could adapt the Roman alphabet to their
own tongue, and trade and military contact between Britain and the Continent suggest
that Britons could have had access to written Celtic.
2 Furthermore, research has demonstrated
that levels of literacy in Britain were perhaps higher and more widespread than
generally thought.
3 This article will analyse the possible evidence for written British
Celtic, particularly Tab. Sulis 14 and 18, which have generated considerable interest
recently, though their interpretation is still open to debate
