GLC: Gaelic Language and Culture



This is my class on the history of the Gaelic speaking peoples of Scotland and Ireland. When I started learning Gaelic in 1993, I didn't know much about the history of the Gaels, or why their language is in the state that it is in today. I have done quite a bit of research and travel over subsequent years. The result is this class.

This class is currently offered through Bellevue College Continuing Education. The class includes seven classes.

  • Origins, Mythology, & Archeology
  • The Celts
  • Romans and Writing
  • Dál Riata to Scotland
  • Lordship of the Isles
  • Union, Suppression, Rebirth (Scotland)
  • Union, Suppression, Independence (Ireland)
