The Celts and their World

This course will explore the world of the Celts from earliest times (800BC), through the classical eras of Ancient Greece and Rome, to Medieval Ireland and Wales and then on to Celtic revival politics in the European Union. Who were the Celts? What did they believe in? How did they live? What legacy have they left to the modern world? We will seek to discover something about the richness of Celtic culture with its poetry, myths, dance, music, and mystery as it developed and changed through time.

Getting Started
1. Start your Group: Anyone can start a Discussion Group – seek out some like-minded friends or put up a notice in your local library, bookshop or workplace. There are many existing groups that welcome new members. If you wish to start a new group to suit your situation WEA can help you, please note that a minimum of 6 people is required to start a new discussion group.
2. Arrange the meetings: New groups need to decide where and when to meet, and for how long – whatever best suits members' particular situations.
3. Run your Group: Choose a secretary to liaise with WEA and your tutor, a Discussion Leader to chair meetings, a reporter to take discussion notes to send to your tutor, and maybe a librarian to look after the books.
