The British Isles, 1100–1500

Comparisons, Contrasts and Connections

Professor Sir Rees Davies

This book is a pioneering attempt to show how the historical understanding of the period 1100–1500 may be enriched by adopting a ‘British Isles’ approach. Some of the chapters approach general issues such as political structures, aristocracies, law and literacy; others focus on more particular problems both between the countries and within them.
