HST 161 - The Peoples of Britain

Course Units: 1
(Fall; Cramsie) Images of royalty, Wimbledon, fish and chips, or ‘Rule Britannia’ sometimes come to mind when we think of Britain. Typically, England has received disproportionate attention in histories despite the fact that four ‘nations’ have existed within the geographical bounds of the ‘British Isles’ (Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England) and many peoples have found their way to those islands: Celts, Romans, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Danes, Norse, Normans, Afro-Caribbeans, Southeast Asians, peoples of South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. This introductory course explores the remarkable interactions among these people who defined the British Isles from the first settlements right through to the present. Upon completion of this course you will have obtained a working knowledge of British History from which to explore the subject in more depth and also be able to demonstrate understanding and appreciation of cultural complexity through the cross-cultural comparisons made in the course.
