Medieval Dublin:  The Making of a Metropolis (1990)
ed. Howard Clarke

From its origins as a monastic settlement and later as a Viking kingdom, to its identity as an English colonial capital, medieval Dublin passed through many incarnations. It has been, alternately, a pirates’ lair at the center of a brutal slave trade, an emergent town ransacked periodically by its Irish neighbors, a rapidly expanding municipality headed by a mayor, and the principal focus of loyalty to the crown in a beleaguered Pale.
