Course Overview

Land of the Scoti, Scotland is a mixture of Celts, Vikings and English. People in the Hebrides still speak a Celtic language. Clan names ending in –son show Viking origin. And the Lowlands seem quite like England to the south. Why are the bagpipes played across the Highlands? How old are the clans with their tartans? When did Presbyterians, Freemasons and Catholics come? The Romans built Hadrian’s Wall partly to keep the wild Scots out of “civilized” Britain! Before that, Neolithic people built magnificent stone monuments and the later Picts carved mythic animals. Plus scotch, wool, dogs, bards, and castles – Scotland is amazing!
