9781405840590   Product Code: 21521
In the last decades of the 13th century the British Isles appeared to be on the point of unified rule, dominated by the lordship, law and language of the English. However, by 1400 Britain and Ireland were divided between the warring kings of England and Scotland, and peoples were still starkly defined by race and nation. This study addresses the question of why the apparent trend towards a common Anglicised world stopped so abruptly after 1300.
