Anglo-Norman Studies XX

Proceedings of the Battle Conference 1997

Edited by Christopher Harper-Bill


Boydell Press



The Anglo-Norman world, with particular focus on the Normans in Ireland.
Founded by Professor R. Allen Brown, the Battle Conference this year celebrates its 20th meeting in Dublin with a particular focus on Irish topics. Anglo-Norman Studies, published annually and containing the papers presented at the conference, is established as the single most important publication in the field (as a glance at bibliographies of the period will confirm), covering not only matters relating to pre- and post-Conquest England and France, but also the activities and influences of the Normans on the wider European, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern stage.
