Identity of England

Robert Colls

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the Celtic lands, which offered more promising journeys. Celtic natives were important to the emotional geography of the Union. While English travelers enjoyed the view, nationalists journeying in their own homeland found it a more intense and demanding exercise. First, they shared the idea of origin as nature. Second, there was the shared idea of distance from central state and church as providing the best conditions for survival.
