Throughout the ages, the Celts have been one of the most enduring andinfluential peoples on history and society; yet, the Celts are often disregarded asperipheral, and are usually only superficially treated in discussions of Europeanhistory. In this course, we will discuss the history of the Celtic peoples in theIron Age, the Roman period, and the early histories of Ireland, Scotland, andWales in the Medieval period. While Celtic history admittedly suffers from alack of reliable narrative accounts, the medieval Celtic nations do possess one ofthe richest traditions of surviving literature, law, and poetry in all of Europe.This material offers exceptional insight into medieval Celtic culture, which willalso be investigated in this course.

Plagiarism is defined as “literary theft” and consists of the
unattributed quotation of the exact words of a published text, or the unattributedborrowing of original ideas by paraphrase from a published text. On writtenpapers for which the student employs information gathered from books, articles,web sites, or oral sources, each direct quotation, as well as ideas and facts thatare not generally known to the public at large, or the form, structure, or style of asecondary source must be attributed to its author by means of the appropriatecitation procedure. Only widely known facts and first-hand thoughts andobservations original to the student do not require citations. Citations may bemade in footnotes or within the body of the text. Plagiarism also consists of
passing off as one’s own segments or the total of another person’s work.
Cheating is defined as follows: (a) the unauthorized granting orreceiving of aid during the prescribed period of a course-graded exercise:students may not consult written materials such as notes or books, may not lookat the paper of another student, nor consult orally with any other student takingthe same test; (b) asking another person to take an examination in his/her place;(c) taking an examination for or in place of another student; (d) stealing visualconcepts, such as drawings, sketches, diagrams, musical programs and scores,
graphs, maps, etc., and presenting them as one’s own; (e) stealing, borrowing,
buying, or disseminating tests, answer keys or other examination material exceptas officially authorized, research papers, creative papers, speeches, other gradedassignments, etc. (f) Stealing or copying of computer programs and presenting
them as one’s own. Such stealing includes the use of another student’s program,
as obtained from the magnetic media or interactive terminals or from cards,print-out paper, etc.
The University of South Florida has an account with an automated plagiarismdetection service which allows instructors to submit student assignments to bechecked for plagiarism. I reserve the right to submit assignments to this detectionsystem. Assignments are compared automatically with a huge database of journal articles, web articles, and previously submitted papers. The instructorreceives a report showing exactly how a student's paper was plagiarized.
Punishment Guidelines:
The student who submitted the subject paper, lab
report, etc., shall receive an “F” with a numerical value of zero on the itemsubmitted, and the “F” shall be used to determine the final course grade. It is the
option of the instructor to assign the student a grade of F or FF (the latterindicating dishonesty) in the course.Student Academic Grievance Procedures -http://www.ugs.usf.edu/catalogs/0708/arcsagp.htm
