About

Celtic Civilisation MA course at University College Cork is concerned with the history of the Celtic peoples from central Europe to Ireland, and from the early Iron Age into the Middle Ages.

Overview

The focus is on Ireland's affinities with the outside world: our European inheritance in prehistoric times, and the manner in which Ireland influenced European culture in the early Christian period. Celtic literature, mythology, languages, learning, and the Celtic saints are particular topics of study.
