The first reference Great Britain in European annals which we know was the statement in the fifth century B. C. of the Greek historian Herodotus, that Phoenician sailors went to the British Isles tin. He called them the "Tin Islands." The people whom these sailors traded must have been Celts, for they were the first inhabitants Britain who worked in metal instead stone. The Druids were priests of the Celts centuries before Christ came. There is a tradition Ireland that they first arrived there 270 B. C., seven hundred years before St. Patrick. The account of them written Julius Cæsar half a century before Christ speaks mainly of the Celts of Gaul, dividing them two ruling classes who kept the people almost in a state slavery; the knights, who waged war, and the Druids who had charge of worship and sacrifices, and were addition physicians, historians, teachers, scientists, and judges.
