Celtic Studies, Oxford, July 1983

  • E. M. Jope and C. F. C. Hawkes

The Congress opened with a welcoming (plenary) reception in the Ashmolean Museum, with an exhibition of the Museum’s Celtic antiquities. The Ashmolean this same year celebrated the tercentenary of its foundation, with a Symposium ‘The Cabinet of Curiosities’, at the same time as the Celtic Congress.

This is a report of the Seventh International Congress of Celtic Studies held in Oxford from 10 to 15 July 1983, written by E. M. Jope, Professor Emeritus of Archaeology, The Queen's University, Belfast, and C. F. C. Hawkes, Professor Emeritus of European Archaeology, University of Oxford. They comment that the Congress took place during a heat wave so that they were grateful for the airy and spacious Examination Schools in which to meet. There were 430 participants, a truly international assembly, the largest Celtic Congress so far. Professor D. Ellis Evans presided. The authors are grateful to him for much help in preparing their report. The general theme was ‘Europe and the Celtic World’. Of about 140 communications some 24 were of primary concern to archaeologists, and many more very relevant.
