Small country, big history: themes in the history of Wales
Overview

How does a country without political independence gain an identity? What is the role of history and historians in shaping national memory and identity? What sources have historians used, and how should we scrutinise them? This short, 15-credit course introduces you to themes and methods used in understanding Welsh history. Using case studies ranging from the impact of Tom Jones and the Welsh rugby team in the twentieth century, to castle building under Edward I, this course will develop your understanding of Welsh history, the craft of the historian, and some of the ways in which national identities are formed. This is a 15-week online course.
