Abstract

This work examines the origins of European ethnic groups which subsequently developed into the nations of Europe. It looks at evidence for the existence of an ethnic consciousness among the dominant European groups; this later formed the basis of nation states. The reconstruction and invention of the past by medieval writers in search of ethnic origins for their own particular political or tribal groups is also studied from a literary and historical point of view.
