Summary
[This] is [an] account of the tumultuous centuries that saw a profound reshaping of Britain - between the Norman invasion of England and the conquest of Wales under Edward I. As Norman and Anglo-Saxon peoples integrated, a new English identity emerged. Yet while their monarchs concentrated on defending a continental empire. Britain's other rulers developed their own plans for mastery. The Welsh struggled both to throw back Norman conquerors and establish dominion over one another, and the Scottish kings expanded their territory and forged a state powerful enough to repulse English invasion. Interweaving the shifting fortunes of British rulers with the wider transformation of economics, languages, politics, and social and religious life, [the author] provides an ... understanding of the momentous era of Medieval Britain. -Back cover
