Overview

The four major studies in this book reflect this distinguished historian's continuing interest in relations between England and Wales in the tenth, eleventh and twelfth centuries. An introduction places the conclusions offered in these studies within the current framework of historical thinking about Wales in this period. The four papers, originally published in years from 1958 to 1976, then follow in a thoroughly revised form, taking account of more recent developments in the subject and of the impact of the original papers upon our perception of Welsh history and Anglo-Welsh ecclesiastical relations.

In 'St Peter of Gloucester and St Cadog of Llancarfan' a detailed examination is made of the complicated links which bound together the churches of Gloucester and Llancarfan from about 1100 and of the sources which reveal these ties.
