Ten Lost Tribes of Israel

There is a theory that the Celts are descended from one of the ten lost tribes of Israel, the tribe of Dan.  Scholar Janet Moser writes:  “There are certain facts that suggest that the Celts might have derived from a Jewish tradition for the East.  The Celtic body of ecclesiastical and civil knowledge was Druidism.  Their system can be traced to about 1800 BC.

Some maintain that the tribes of Dan, known for its seafaring, conducted sea voyages to Ireland and colonized it as early as the period of the Judges in the 7th century BC under the name Tuatha De Dannan.
