As rich and diverse as its subject, Dickson’s magisterial history brings 1,400 years of Dublin vividly to life: from its medieval incarnation through the neoclassical eighteenth century, the Easter Rising that convulsed the city in 1916, the bloody civil war following the handover of power by Britain, to end-of-millennium urban renewal efforts.

In this third volume deriving from the 2000-2003 excavations of the Viking town of Kaupang, a range of artefacts is presented along with a discussion of the town's inhabitants: their origins, activities, and trading connections. The main categories of artefact are metal jewellery and ornaments, gemstones, vessel glass, pottery, finds of soapstone, whetstones, and textile-production equipment. The artefacts are described and dated, and their areas of origin discussed. The volume is lavishly illustrated. An exceptional wealth and diversity of artefacts distinguishes sites such as Kaupang from all other types of site in the Viking World. Above all, they reflect the fact that a large population of some 400-600 people lived closely together in the town, engaged in a comprehensive range of production and trade. The stratigraphically distinct layers from the first half of the 9th century allow us to put precise dates to the finds, and to the buildings and evidence of activities associated with them. The finds and structural remains make it possible to identify the activities that took place within the six buildings excavated. We can distinguish between some buildings that were only temporarily in use and others that were permanently occupied. Several of the temporary buildings were used by a variety of craftsmen while those under permanent occupation were houses, and only to a secondary degree, workshops. Throughout the life of the town from c. AD 800-930, trade links with southern Scandinavia, the Baltic, and the Irish Sea would appear to have been strong. In the earliest phases of the town there was considerable trade with the Frisian regions, probably with Dorestad, but this link faded markedly in the second half of the 9th century, probably because of the abandonment of Dorestad. Within what is now Norway, Kaupang seems to have been supplied with goods from the interior of eastern Norway. Goods from around the western coasts of Norway, however, are practically invisible. Finds of personal equipment show that the inhabitants of the town were of diverse origins. Many of them were from southern and western Scandinavia, but there were also Frisians there. One house can be identified as that of a Frisian household engaged in trade. There were also Slavs in Kaupang, although it is not clear whether they were long-term residents.

In this, the first of six volumes, the main results of the excavations that the University of Oslo carried out at Kaupang from 1998 to 2003 are presented. A completely new picture is put forward of the port that Ottar visited in c.890. It is now clear that Kaupang was one of the four Scandinavian towns that were founded around the year 800. Kaupang is connected to the power centre of Skiringssal, to the Ynglings - the legendary Norwegian royal lineage, and to the King of the Danes - the dominant political actor in south-west Scandinavia. In nine of the book's 20 chapters, the excavations' finds, analyses and results are presented. Kaupang is shown to have had several of the same features revealed in Birka, Hedeby and Ribe - i.e., a compact permanent settlement, divided into small plots, each with a dwelling. The town could have had 400-800 inhabitants. Substantial traces of trade and craftwork are proof of the main areas of occupation. Advanced geo- and environmental-archaeological analyses have played a large role in interpreting the finds. In three chapters, 200 years of research on Kaupang and Skiringssal are summarised, while in the remaining eight chapters an endeavour is made to re-establish the holistic approach to Skiringssal that dominated research during the first 100 years. Documentary sources indicate that Skiringssal was an important royal seat in the 700s and 800s. In this volume, these sources are put together with the archaeological and toponymical sources which, united, show a centre of power with a clear likeness to similar places in Denmark and Sweden. A hall or sal building, presumably the Skirings-sall itself, was excavated at Huseby, near Kaupang. Nearby, a thing site is situated by a holy lake. In this, the Yngling kings' centre of power, to which many people came to attend thing meetings and sacrificial feasts, the town Kaupang was founded.

The story of a remarkable Viking boat grave at Scar in Orkney, rescued by archaeologists in 1991, just before winter storms finally claimed it. The boat's wealthy cargo included three people: a man of about 20, a child of 10 or 11, and a woman astonishingly old for the time, probably in her 70s.

This book is a discursive attempt to reconstruct the appearance of Viking buildings in Denmark. This is difficult, as the author makes clear, firstly because there is little archaeological evidence for the form of the superstructure and, secondly, because of the wide chronological and geographical variation in type. Still, the presentation in English of comparative material from selected settlements and house-sites (both drawings and descriptions) and the vision presented will form useful resources for anybody interested in the architectural forms of this formative period.

This report has specialist contributions on aspects of the Peel Castle site which either present new evidence for the Isle of Man or explore a new approach to the data. Sections are included on the prehistoric environmental evidence, a re-examination of the flint work of the Isle of Man, a discussion of the Viking Age artefacts, an assessment of the Early Christian cross slabs, a description of the Norse coins, the application of new analytical techniques to the study of Norse beads, pioneering studies of constructional materials in relation to trade and architecture, the analysis of the largest assemblage of pottery from any site in the Isle of Man, and the similarly important groups of fish bones, bird bones, animal bones and human bones, and the Carbon 14 data for an important series of structures, ranging from Iron Age huts to Norse ramparts.

Loscad Rechrainne o geinntib, 'the burning of Rechru [Rathlin Island, Co. Antrim] by heathens': thus is the first Viking raid on Ireland recorded in the Annals of Ulster under the year 795. The 1200th anniversary of this event was marked by an international conference in Dublin, the proceedings of which are published in this volume. It contains papers devoted to archaeology, history and literature and covers the full span of Irish-Scandinavian relations during the early Viking Age up to c. 1000 in the light of the most recent research. The published proceedings also contain overviews of the subject from both Irish and Scandinavian perspectives.

This is a collection of original essays on topics from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries. The subjects include the history of medieval Dublin, the medieval Irish Church, Ireland in French Arthurian romances, English law in Ireland, urban institutions in medieval Europe, medieval Irish and Continental scholarship, a previously unknown royal portrait, an Irish archbishop's controversy with the friars, humanism in fourteenth-century Florence, the Reformation in England and Hungary, the Counter-Reformation in France, Spain and Ireland, piety in nineteenth-century England and Ireland, and the historiography of the 1916 Easter Rising. The authors are a distinguished group of scholars based in Ireland, England, Austria, Germany and the United States, who were pupils, colleagues and friends of F. X. Martin, who was Professor of Chair of Medieval History from 1962 until his retirement in 1988. The range of the resulting volume does justice to that of F. X. Martin's own interests and to the importance of his contributions to historical scholarship.

Between the 5th and 12th centuries Ireland was responsible for some of the most beautiful decorative work in bronze, silver and gold in Europe. This study focuses on the archaeological and industrial context of these objects, an area, Michelle Comber argues, that has been largely overshadowed in favour of aesthetic appreciatopn. Based around a gazetter of sites of production and an ilustrated catalogue of over 350 metalworking finds recovered from Lagore crannog im County Meath (principally crucible fragments, moulds, motifs, tools and wires), the thesis also examines literary evidence, the technology of non-ferrous metalworking, and the types of places where metalworking and trade took place. The case study of Lagore crannog is also discussed in some detail.
