Recent years have seen an upsurge of interest in all things Celtic – providing a renewed impetus and vigour to Celtic studies, debates, culture and politics.Within the broad arena of Celtic culture, for instance, there have been sustained efforts to reinvigorate the indigenous languages of the various Celtic regions.The formation of the Welsh Language Board and TV Breizh – or Breton-language television – in recent years can be seen as examples of such attempts to promote the use of Celtic languages in both the public and the private sectors, making them more relevant to contemporary politics, commerce and culture. Allied to this have been the efforts to promote various other elements of Celtic culture – with regard to music, art and dance – and, moreover, to highlight the cultural commonalities that exist between the constituent Celtic countries.The cultural exchange schemes that operate between the various Celtic countries, for example, have led to an increased awareness among Celtic people of the cultures and art forms of their Celtic ‘cousins’.This has, in many ways, helped to foster within the Celtic people a sense of cultural Pan-Celticism, one which can be represented by the dictum ‘Six nations, one soul’.
