Wallonia—the southern region of Belgium—boasts an extraordinarily rich cultural heritage. This book presents the first comprehensive overview of Walloon culture, exploring in particular the roles that literature, music, and art have played in establishing a sense of Walloon identity from prehistory to the present.

Lavishly illustrated with over four hundred reproductions of manuscripts, photographs, maps, and other works of art, this volume offers a magnificent exploration of Walloon culture.

Bruno Demoulin is a professor at the Université de Liège and director-general of culture at the Province of Liège.
