Boii

 

a group of Celtic tribes who lived in ancient times on the territory of central and northwestern Bohemia, the Tirol, and northern Italy. They were subjugated by the Romans in Italy in 191 B.C. (The name “Bohemia” is derived from the name of this tribe.) Around 60 B.C. part of the Boii moved out of Bohemia into Pannonia and Noricum, and from there partially into Gaul. There is no more information on the Boii after the settlement of Bohemia by the Marcomanni (end of the first century B.C.). The Boii played an important role in the ethnogenesis of the Czech people.

Several of the fourteen short articles, mostly by younger scholars but including Markus Egg (on contact before the historical migration period) and Daniele Vitali (two contributions, one a summary of his excavations at Monte Bibele in the Monterenzio region south of Bologna's ancient seat of the Boii, the other a survey of the region's art), elaborate on the new orthodoxy that the Celts cannot be regarded as a people; albeit they concede that the historic expansion does coincide with an expansion of certain specific 'Celtic' types such as swords and helmets.
