Credits: 5
Semester: 2
Department: CELTIC STUDIES

Overview Overview
 

This is a foundation course in Irish Cultural Heritage Studies. While introducing students to a general understanding of early cultural history, the emphasis is on the importance of academic knowledge of the past as a foundation for the presentation and dissemination of cultural heritage for the general public. This is an assessment of the diverse aspects of Irish cultural history including place names, the literature of places and the creation and manipulation of history in relation to some of the great prehistoric and early medieval locations in Ireland. The care, presentation and future development of heritage sites such as the Hill of Tara, Newgrange, Corlea and the Bog Bodies, and Clonmacnoise will be assessed in the context of modern scholarly interpretation and the increasing importance of cultural tourism.

Note 1: Students cannot take ID001X if they have already completed ID001 in the first semester.
