Medieval Ireland presents the culture and society of Ireland from the sixth to the sixteenth century. Most scholarly works on Irish history cover either the pre- or post- Anglo-Norman invasion of 1169. This unique resource spans both periods with a single volume. Coverage of multiple fields of study answers the increasing interdisciplinarity of Irish medieval studies.

An exhaustive portrait of a lively and provocative period, the Encyclopedia was written by approximately 200 scholars and experts, and offers a comprehensive approach that will help students draw connections between disciplines and topics.
