    A potential Celtic bronze figure representing a smith working on a piece of metal, and dated to the 8th - 7th century BC is sitting in the National Museum of Belgrade classified as Hellenistic. The figurine was found somewhere near the village of Vranište in South Eastern Serbia where people still use Celtic crosses as their village standing crosses.

    Belgrade was one of the most important strongholds of the Celtic Scordisci empire, which was based on metallurgy. 20 kilometers south from Belgrade there are two villages, Železnik and Vranić, which are located near the ancient iron and silver mines. There has been over two thousand years since the Celts "left" the Belgrade area. But even after all that time has passed, people in these two small villages still use Irish expression taraiš - “tar éis” meaning beyond, as a name for land which lies just beyond the village boundary.

    Is it possible that Celts never left Serbia?
