Here an early writ refers to French, English and Flemish burgesses but none that were Welsh (Davies 1987: 166). It seems that, right from the start, Norman lords sought to exclude the Welsh from living in their towns, or at least to deny them the privileges that outside settlers could enjoy. Such exclusion persisted until the later Middle Ages. For example, as late as 1351, a royal borough charter granted to Hope (in Flintshire) explicitly excluded the Welsh from being able to hold burgages, and those who had somehow managed to get hold of burgages found them being conﬁscated and redistributed (Soulsby 1983: 149).
Hence, rather than viewing the Celtic periphery as a site of exclusion, its marginality becomes a prized commodity. In effect, the ‘traditional otherness’ of the Celtic regions – manifest in terms of landscape, culture, heritage and symbolism – is valued in terms of its potential for economic gain. Although this is seen largely as a phenomenon with particular territorial associations, it is not uniquely so. The ability of Celticism to play an active part in the global cultural capital market should not be overlooked.
M I L L I G A N extend the geographical reach of Celticity on a global scale. The various chapters drawn together in this volume seek to capture the manifold ways in which Celticity may be advocated, both in historical and contemporary contexts. We begin the volume with a section which explores the broad themes of ‘Othering and identity politics’. Here, the contributors focus on the long-term relationship between the Celtic ‘periphery’ and a predominantly English ‘core’. The ﬁrst two chapters explore these themes in a historical context.
