Reviews

"This set is recommended to academic and public libraries needing reference material on the early history of the British Isles."

"This encyclopedia seems to be unique in its coverage of anything British or Irish from around the Stone

Age to 1154, the beginning of the Plantagenet reign in Britain. ... Though the encyclopedia overlaps with Medieval England: An Encyclopedia (1998) and Medieval Ireland: An Encyclopedia (2005), both published by Garland, it has a different chronological range. Moreover, it offers another perspective by examining both Britain and Ireland together. Recommended for academic and large public libraries."

"...[M]arshalling over 500 alphabetical entries by 62 contributors, about half of them American, the other half British (many from Lampeter University), with a smattering of Dutch Irish and Canadian... there are good individual entries for example Aidan O'Sullivan's long entry on prehistoric and early medieval houses, or good summaries, for example by John Collins on aspects of the Iron Age. Commendable as it is to take the long view and expose student[s] to early historic periods to prehistory."
