Celtic Britain and Ireland, AD 200-800 : the myth of the Dark Ages by Lloyd Robert Laing( Book )

31 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term "Dark Ages" was coined to describe a period which was seen as a period of anarchy and violence, following the collapse of civilization. Recent discoveries by archaeologists and historians have, however, radically altered this traditional view of the Dark Ages, and the period is now seen as one of innovation and dynamic social evolution. This book reconsiders a number of traditionally accepted views. It argues, for example, that the debt of the Dark Age Celts to Rome was enormous, even in areas such as Ireland that were never occupied by Roman invaders. It also discusses the traditional chronology, suggesting that the date of AD 400 usually taken as the start of the Early Christian period in Britain and Ireland now has comparatively little meaning. Once this conventional framework is removed, it is possible to show how the Celtic world of the Dark Ages took shape under Roman influence in the centuries between about 200 to 800, and looked to Rome even for the immediate inspiration for its art. Such questions as the extent of British (that is, Celtic) survival in pagan Saxon England, and the Celtic and Roman contribution to early England are considered. - Jacket flap

The archaeology of Celtic Britain and Ireland, c. AD 400-1200 by Lloyd Robert Laing( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The image of the Celt is one of the most emotive in the European past, evoking pictures of warriors, feasts, and gentle saints and scholars. This comprehensive and fully-illustrated book re-appraises the archaeology of the Celtic-speaking areas of Britain and Ireland from the late fourth to the twelfth century AD, a period in which the Celts were a leading cultural force in northern Europe. Drawing on scientific advances, the book provides a new perspective on the economy, settlement, material culture, art and technological achievements of the early medieval Celts and re-examines their interaction with the Romans and Vikings. This book also includes a full survey of artifacts and archaeological sites, from memorial stones to monasteries

European influence on Celtic art : patrons and artists by Lloyd Robert Laing( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After decades of speculation and confusion about the nature of Celtic art, current studies reveal hidden meanings, symbols and codes that early medieval artists incorporated into individual artworks such as manuscripts, brooches and intricately carved stone monuments. This book discusses how visual imagery, ornament and techniques of production were drawn from international sources, notably the Classical world, Frankish Gaul, Byzantium, the Eastern Mediterranean and Viking Scandinavia. From the Iron Age to the twelfth century powerful patrons - kings, warriors and church leaders - drove the art forms that deliberately conveyed strong messages about society and beliefs."--Publisher's description

Britain's European heritage by Lloyd Robert Laing( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between Britain and Europe has rarely been debated as fiercely as today. The splits in the major political parties reflect the strength of conflicts over Britain's role in Europe. Today's concerns about British national identity have historical precedents that stretch back to medieval race riots and Roman invectives against the "little Brits". Britain's European Heritage is a timely and welcome survey which sheds some clear historical light on this controversial topic. This book raises important issues concerning the origins of the majority of modern Britons in the light of a shared heritage with the European mainland. It celebrates the European aspects of Britain's past, while paying tribute to the vast number of European visitors who came, stayed, and molded these islands. In the process Britain was changed irrevocably. Britain's European Heritage will be of interest to all those, of whatever origin, who wish to gain a greater understanding of Britain's past. At the same time it offers a challenging new perspective on current debates over relations with the rest of Europe. - Jacket flap
