Look at the book,

Fantastic Archarchaeology.


Stephen Williams

It covers these and other topics. No Celtic sites have been found, no
celtic language remnants, etc. There have been claims, but all have been
basically wishful thiinking. The Hebrew tribes is the basis for the
Mormon faith as the book of Mormon claims they came here. The
archaeological dating of the areas claimed (well at least currently by the
LDS church) don't match up with the dates in the book. [Originally the
LDS indicated the tribes were around Ohio and built the mounds there.]
