Germania Remembered examines how German, English and Scandinavian scholars, writers and artists have invoked the remote history of Germany in order to bolster their ideas about what it meant to be German (or Germanic). 

The seventeen essays in the volume show how various aspects of ancient Germanic society - its language, religion, laws, music, poetry, and historical figures, such as Hermann/Arminius - have been reimagined in Germany and beyond, in areas ranging from theatre and art to history, from musical theory to regional culture, philology to popular literature.  - from University of Nottingham website
