The modern Gaulish language represents the revival of the Gaulish language for the modern world. The Gaulish language is the Celtic language that was spoken in Gaul, roughly the area of Western Europe between the Rhine, the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Ocean,  at the start of recorded history. After the invasion and conquest of the area  by the Roman Empire the language was gradually replaced by Latin and became extinct sometime in the middle ages. It was closely related to Brittonic, and its modern descendants Welsh, Cornish and Breton, and more distantly to Goidelic and its modern forms Irish, Gaelic and Manx. This site presents a series of lessons in several languages for the modern, revived form of the language, which is currently being used as a means of cultural expression and communication by a small but growing number of people.
