An excerpt from the article 27 facts about Czech Republic

The most famous culture present in the Czech lands in the prehistoric era is the Unetic culture, which developed in these areas for about five centuries. In the 5th century BC, the Celts came there, and one of their tribes was the Boii. They gave the Czech lands the name Land of Boii, which in Latin is Boiohaeum. At the beginning of our era, the Celts were displaced by Germanic tribes. The most famous Germanic tribe was the Marcomanni, and traces of their wars with the Roman Empire remained in southern Moravia.
