An Introduction to the Celts

Arachne | | Thursday, October 29th, 2009

This course was developed and presented as a lecture over five 1½ hour sessions with 30 minutes set aside each session for questions and discussion. However the material can be used in a variety of ways; “one-offs”, short courses, discussion groups, as a stimulus for group work and independent research. Course leaders should feel free to adapt this material as needed. Suggestions about how this might be done are included.

This course can not be downloaded because it is 300+ megabytes. Therefore it must be sent as a CD. Apply to the Library Manager  to have a copy sent to you.
