Aberdeen is one of the very few universities in Europe where it is possible for a student to study the Celts, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in comparison. Our modules cover literature, culture, history and languages. The emphasis is on the Dark Ages and Middle Ages, but with modules on ancient and modern periods as well. No prior knowledge is expected. Students can choose their own pathway based on a wide range of available modules, depending on their particular areas of interest. Aberdeen has been a centre for Celtic studies for more than a century, and our library resources are outstanding. All our modules are taught on the beautiful, late-mediaeval King’s College campus, and the surrounding countryside is rich in archaeological and historic remains of Scotland’s Celtic and Nordic past.
