Scotland and Europe: Religion, culture and commerce
Setting out to explore the rich diversity of medieval Scotland's contacts with Europe, the author focuses on religious, cultural and economic connections and includes a study of both the means by which people travelled and the first major wave of emigration from Scotland. The book ranges widely from the galloglass who fought in Ireland to artists who painted in the Netherlands; from impoverished students to merchants and monasteries wealthy from the export of wool.
