Description for Medieval Ireland the enduring tradition Paperback. Good clean copy with some minor shelf wear

As a result, a new interpretation of medieval Ireland emerges - one in which social and cultural norms inherent from pre-historic times in Ireland are seen to survive right through the Middle ages.
