The Promotion of Knowledge

H. Jenkins Geraint

British Academy

This chapter comments on Keith Robbins' lecture on the history of Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It criticizes Robbins' failure to discuss the Welsh language, which is critical to the understanding and validation of Celtic Studies as a subject. It stresses the need to revitalize the study of medieval Welsh history, which is close to collapse because of changing student demands.

Keywords:   history, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Keith Robbins, Welsh language, Celtic Studies, medieval history, Welsh history
