Abstract

This public lecture explores how changing ideas about the past have contributed to the unprecedented existential challenges now facing the British state. It considers the extent to which the march of devolution, the rise of nationalism, and the growth of the Euro-sceptic movement in Wales, Scotland and Ireland are the result of long-term historical changes. It also examines some of the changing ways in which constituent nations of the UK have mythologised their own pasts, as well as their historical relationships with one another and with Europe.
