Product Description

Details

Exploring the history of Scotland's western seaboard during the central Middle Ages, this study discusses three interrelated themes: the existence of the Isles and coastal mainland as a kingdom; the monarchs of the region, from Somerled to his descendant John MacDonald, the first Lord of the Isles; and the complex relations among the Isles, Scotland, Norway, and England. This new edition addresses the religious position at the time, commenting on the Church and monasticism as well as the construction of monuments such as monasteries, chapels, and castles.
