Synopsis

This volume explores aspects of the political, social, cultural, economic and religious development of Scotland in the reign of King Alexander II (1214-49). It constitutes the first full-length, multi-author study of the king and his reign. The nine contributors to the volume explore issues as diverse as the historiography of the reign, Anglo-Scottish relations, Church-State relations, economy and international trade, law, aristocratic symbolism, urban development and the territorial expansion of the kingdom. This book, the first major study of a reign which saw the Scottish monarchy achieve its mastery of northern mainland Britain, is of great importance to historians of medieval Scotland and the wider British Isles.
