NEW! Ireland: Small Island, Big History
4 sessions, 6 hours
Ireland has had an impact on world history far greater than one would expect for such a small island on the western edge of Europe. A combination of early relative isolation, followed by centuries of turmoil has resulted in a unique cultural heritage shared by millions across the globe. In a “big picture” survey of Ireland’s history we will trace this remarkable story from Neolithic times to the present day.
