This free course, Welsh history and its sources, is a teaching and learning resource for anyone interested in Welsh history. It contains study materials, links to some of the most important institutions that contribute to our understanding of the history of Wales, and a pool of resources that can help you understand Welsh history and the way it is studied. Included in the material is a taster of the Open University course Small country, big history: themes in the history of Wales (A182).
Course learning outcomes
After studying this course, you should be able to:
understand some of the basic themes and issues that have been the focus for historians of Wales
become aware of a variety of approaches employed by historians in interpreting and constructing history generally and Welsh history specifically
understand issues that contribute to the cultural identity of Wales.
An interesting course on Welsh history covering radicalism, revolt, oppression and rights amongst many other facets of the life and times of this corner of Britain. The course reinforced and enhanced subject areas I had been taught many decades ago and also introduced history that I was unaware of.
I enjoyed the course and it contributes very well towards my CPD and performance management targets.
