« back to classes page
Ireland, Scotland, and Wales represent some of the most lively and colorful cultures known in the modern Western world. When we think of Irish, Scottish, and Welsh music, we cannot help but think of harps, bagpipes, fiddles, and the soaring voices of musicians such as Enya, the Chieftains, and Celtic Woman. Similarly, one cannot imagine Irish, Scottish, and Welsh culture without its traditional customs, dress, and beverages, such as St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, kilts, and the production of Guinness beer, scotch, and whisky. But the history of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales is also full of tales of conquest, conflict, and oppression. We will focus on the early cultural identity of the Irish, Scots, and Welsh and their customs and mythologies; the influence of Roman culture and Christianity on these lands and peoples; the English conquest and colonization of these lands and peoples; and, finally, on the process of political devolution in all three areas, including the repercussions of the Brexit process on devolution
