Colonisation and Conquest in Medieval Ireland by Brendan Smith

Book Description

This book examines the development of English colonial society in the eastern coastal area of Ireland now known as county Louth, in the period 1170-1330. At its heart is the story of two relationships: that between settler and native in Louth, and that between the settlers and England. An important part of the story is the comparison with parts of Britain which witnessed similar English colonization. Fifty years before the arrival of the English, Louth was incorporated into the Irish kingdom of Airgialla, experiencing rapid change in the political and ecclesiastical spheres under its dynamic ruler Donnchad Ua Cerbaill. The impact of this legacy on English settlement is given due prominence. The book also explores the reasons why well-to-do members of local society in the West Midlands of England in the reigns of Henry II and his sons were prepared to become involved in the Irish adventure.

Lords and Lordship in the British Isles in the Late Middle Ages by Brendan Smith Lords and Lordship in the British Isles in the Late Middle Ages, Hardback (June 2009)

It is well known that political, economic, and social power in the British Isles in the Middle Ages lay in the hands of a small group of lords. In his final book, the late Rees Davies explores the personalities of these magnates, the nature of their lordship, and the ways in which it was expressed in a diverse and divided region in this period.

Ireland and the English World in the Late Middle Ages by Brendan Smith Ireland and the English World in the Late Middle Ages, Hardback (April 2009)

Through examination of issues such as frontier formation, colonial identities and connections with the wider world it explores whether this period saw the bonds between the British Isles weaken, strengthen, or simply alter.
