Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video centers on Scotland, the northernmost part of Great Britain and the home of Celtic traditions and brave soldiers. Reenactments, period imagery, and paintings capture the Scottish nation through the ages. The legends of the thistle and the shamrock are brought to life, as well as the role of the Great Highland Bagpipes as a weapon of war. Said to strike fear in the enemy and strengthen the hearts of the soldiers of the British Isles, the pipes have a colorful history. This video -- a review of the Scottish culture reflected in dialect, folklore, custom and architecture -- is one of a three-part series on the Celtic region.
