The Modern Scholar: Celts and Germans: The Enduring Heritage of the European Northlands by Timothy B. Shutt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is another lecture in the modern scholar series. I enjoyed Professor Shutt’s previous lectures so I decided to give this one a try.
He mainly uses literary texts to explore the cultures and as such doesn’t address the Druids very much. (The Druids transmitted all their information orally and so much of it is lost.) He discusses many of the Norse texts such as the Prose Edda or the Saga of the Volsungs. Shutt then moves on to a discussion of Beowulf and finally the troubadour culture of southern France.
I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others. Plus it’s only 4 disks so its a quick listen.
