A Traveller's History of Ireland
(6th ed.)
Peter Neville

published 2009 5" x 7 3/4" • 288 pages • b&w illus., maps

A Traveller’s History of Ireland gives a full and accurate portrait of Ireland from its prehistory right up to the present. The story opens with mysterious, early Celtic Ireland where no Roman stood, through Saint Patrick’s mission to Ireland, which began the process of making it “an island of saints,” to the legendary high King Brian Boru and his struggle with Viking and Irish enemies alike. It moves on through the arrival of the Norman “Strongbow” in the twelfth century, and the beginnings of the difficult and tragic Anglo-Irish relationship. The book then moves into modern times with the great revolts of 1798 and the horrors of the potato famine, and ends with a
description of modern Ireland and of its two separate Catholic Nationalist and Protestant Unionist traditions.

Peter Neville is senior lecturer in contemporary and modern history at the University of Luton. He is also the author of several books on aspects of European and world history.
