Celtic (Research) University of Aberdeen

Celtic and Anglo-Saxon research allows you to make full use of our department and links to Celtic Departments at other Universities and the Irish-Scottish Academic Initiative. The Celtic Department at Aberdeen provides a highly supportive research environment which fosters a wide variety of scholarly approaches to the ancient, medieval and modern cultures of the Celtic-speaking countries.

There is a special focus on contemporary Scottish Gaelic language, literature and socio-linguistics, minority-language planning and policy, medieval history, ancient Celtic religion and mythology, and the formation of our image of the Celts in the modern period.
