British Sources for Irish History 1485-1641
Only 1 left in stock
This ambitious book represent the first attempt to make up for the damage done to Irish history by the 1922 fire in the Dublin public record office which destroyed the records of whole sections of Ireland’s past-especially the records of the period 1485-1641, the age of the Kildrare ascendancy, the Tudor reconquest and the plantation. Suspecting that much Irish archival material remained undiscovered in Britain, in 1988 the authors began an extensive survey of the hundreds of regional and specialized record offices that exist across England, Scotland and Wales. In the course of their work they visited many archive centers to check through catalogues and indexes. Their findings, listed in detail here, are of major cultural significance, uncovering thousands of documents dealing with all aspects of Irish life that might otherwise have remained forgotten. It is expected that this book will quickly become an essential reference work and research tool for all students of late medieval and early modern Ireland.
