Urban Assimilation in Post-Conquest Wales : Ethnicity, Gender and Economy in Ruthin, 1282-1348, Hardback Book

Urban Assimilation in Post-Conquest Wales : Ethnicity, Gender and Economy in Ruthin, 1282-1348 Hardback

Part of the Studies in Welsh History series

Hardback

Description

This book uses, principally but not only, a case study of the Denbighshire town of Ruthin to discuss both the significance of Englishness versus Welshness and of gender distinctions in the network of small Anglo-Welsh urban centres which emerged in north Wales following the English conquest of 1282.

It carefully constructs an image of the way in which townspeople's everyday lives were influenced by their ethnic background, gender, wealth and social status.

In this manner it explores and explains the motivations of English and welsh townspeople to work together in the mutual pursuit of prosperity and social stability.
