Looking for Culture

Postby Daniel Cossins » Thu Apr 30, 2009 5:20 pm

Alan reflects on how local historians always look for the distinctiveness of traditional culture wherever they go, whether it's dialect, folk music, or seasonal customs.

While in Budapest, however, Alan experiences a musical stand-off that makes him realise how the globalisation of culture could drown out the last shouts of local cultural difference.

Does your area have any traditional customs?

Are they still going strong, or in danger of dying out?

What's distinctive about the local culture and heritage of your city, town or village?
