This 9th volume of proceedings of the annual Friends of Medieval Dublin Symposium contains, as usual, reports on recent archaeological excavations: Claire Walsh found traces of an early pre-Viking roadway at Chancery Lane; Giles Dawkes discusses his excavations at Church Street and May Lane, which revealed the enclosure of St Michan's church and two medieval timber-framed buildings; Franc Myles reports on a millpond, watercourses and 17th-century defences along Ardee Street in the Liberties; and Linzi Simpson suggests that the graveyard known as Bully's Acre may have been part of the early medieval monastery of Kilmainham. Other papers include Peter Harbison's revelation of neglected illustrations of St Doolagh's medieval church, in north Co. Dublin, done over a period of two centuries; Bernadette Williams reveals the discovery in a Dublin manuscript of the lost coronation oath of King Edward I; and Peter Crooks casts new light on the place of Dublin in the Windsor crisis (1369-79) that erupted in the latter years of King Edward III. Among the other essays is a presentation by Breffni O'Rourke and Niall Ó hOis'n on the making of Medieval Dublin: from Vikings to Tudors, a DVD for schools.
