  • Overview

    The course examines the Celtic-speaking peoples in the Iron Age and Roman periods at a time when Celtic languages were spoken throughout the British Isles but also extensively in Continental Europe, including parts of modern day France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Turkey. Ethnographic accounts by Greek and Latin writers are used alongside the evidence of archaeology, art, and language to explore the history of the Celts (e.g. contact with the Mediterranean world, migration, conquest by Rome), their religion, and society, and, indeed, the very nature of 'Celticity' in this period.
