Summary
"Britain and its Neighbours explores instances and periods of cultural contact and exchanges between communities in Britain with those in other parts of Europe between c.500-1700. Collectively, the twelve case studies highlight certain aspects of cultural contact and exchange, present neglected factors, previously overlooked evidence, and new methodological approaches. With its range of specialised topics, Britain and its Neighbours will be a useful resource for undergraduates, postgraduates, and scholars interested in cultural and intellectual studies and the history of Britain's longstanding connections to Europe"-- Provided by publisher.
