About the Author:


Wendy Davies is Pro-Provost, European Affairs, and Professor of History at University College London. She has written on early Welsh, Breton, Irish, English and European history and archaeology. She is currently directing, with James Graham-Campbell, the Celtic Inscribed Stones Project (CISP), an interdisciplinary project to establish a database of all known early medieval Celtic inscribed stones. Professor Davies has recently begun to work on rural communities in northern Spain in the tenth century: she is currently writing on sale, price and valuation in Galicia and Castile-León and is developing a new field project with colleagues in the Medieval Department of the Consejo Superior Investigaciones Cientificas, Madrid.

Review:

`This is an admirable collection of papers raising important themes and offering a number of challenges to accepted orthodoxies about the nature and development of the separate areas of early medieval Britain.'
Advance praise from an academic in the Department of History, University of Sheffield

`With so distinguished a team of contributors, this book cannot . . . fail to be a success.'
Advance praise from an academic at the University of Glasgow

`This book inaugurates a historiography of the early medieval British Isles and suggests some of the ways in which it might be written. The fact that it does so intelligibly and often compellingly is a mark of the quality of the individual contributions and the significance of the collective
project in which they are engaged.'
Early Medieval Europe 2006
