This volume is the third of a five-volume definitive history of the Isle of Man, from the evolution of its natural landscape through prehistory and modern times. The reassessment of the island’s medieval legacy explored here highlights the island’s position as a hub of English, Scottish, Irish and Norwegian power politics as well as it considers the complex nexus of interrelationships—linguistic, economic, and political—that linked the various peoples of the British Isles and Scandinavia.
