Many traditions that we consider very ancient, in their origins were not in fact sanctioned by a long use over the centuries, but was invented at a relatively recent dateThis book explores examples of this process of invention, – the creation of Welsh and Scottish “national culture”; the development of the British royal rituals in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; the origins of the empire of rituals in British India and Africa; and attempts by radical movements to develop counter-traditions of their ownIt deals with the complex interaction between past and present, bringing together historians and anthropologists in a fascinating study of ritual and symbolism that raises new questions for understanding our history.
