Overview

The period from the mid-11th to the end of the 13th century was a time of great change in Wales and was beset by the struggle to maintain their independence and identity from their English neighbours. This broad-ranging study provides a good introduction to this period of Welsh history, to the social, economic, political and religious changes that took place and to the role of the Welsh princes and aristocracy in these transformations. An authoritative, well written book that looks at the power of a ruling elite, their part in administrative re-organisation, the ruthless consolidation of power and the political and military competition for supremacy among different kingdoms.
