    Recent genetic studies have challenged the traditional view that the ancestors of British Celtic people spread from central Europe during the Iron Age, and have suggested a much earlier origin for them as part of the human postglacial recolonization of Britain at the end of the last glaciation. The study shows that genetic lineages of the bank vole (Myodes glareolus) and of four other small mammal species also form a 'Celtic fringe'. It is argued that these small mammals most reasonably colonized Britain in a two-phase process following the last glaciation, with climatically-driven partial replacement of the first colonists by the second colonists, leaving a peripheral geographic distribution for the first colonists. We suggest that these natural Celtic fringes provide insight into the same phenomenon in humans and support its origin in processes following the end of the last glaciation.
