Dublin : through space and time, c. 900-1900( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first of a mini-series on the development of Dublin from the earliest times. From both geographical and historical perspectives, it tries to unravel and explain the many processes that have interacted to produce the city as we know it today." "Dublin through space and time sets the scene for later books. It begins with the early city, piecing together research from geography (especially evidence from maps, the quintessential geographical tool), archaeology and history. As the architecture of the period shows so vividly, Dublin flowered in the eighteenth century; the following sections look at how this was achieved and by whom; much information is analysed and mapped for the first time and a wealth of fascinating detail is revealed. The nineteenth century was a tale of two cities: the better off moved to suburbs beyond the canals, leaving social problems behind in the inner city." "It was not all gloom. For the better off, Dublin was a bright and vibrant city. The final two sections of the book offer a reconstruction of Dublin at the beginning of the twentieth century, looking at how it might have been seen and experienced by the people of the day." "The book is lavishly illustrated with maps, diagrams and photographs."--Jacket

Lords and towns in medieval Europe : the European historic towns atlas project( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is based on possibly the biggest single Europe-wide project in urban history. In 1955 the International Commission for the History of Towns established the European historic towns atlas project in accordance with a common scheme in order to encourage comparative urban studies. Although advances in urban archaeology since the 1960s have highlighted the problematic relationship between the oldest extant town plan and the actual origins of a town, the large-scale cadastral maps as they have been made available by the European historic towns atlas project are still necessary if we want to understand the evolution of the physical form of our towns. By 2014 the project consisted of over 500 individual publications from over 18 different countries across Europe. Each atlas comprises at least a core-map at the scale of 1:2500, analytical maps and an explanatory text. The time has come to use this enormous database that has been compiled over the last 40 years. This volume, itself based on a conference related to this topic that was held in the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin in 2006, takes up this challenge. The focus of the volume is on the question of how seigneurial power influenced the creation of towns in medieval Europe and of how this process in turn influenced urban form. Part I of the volume addresses two major issues: the history of the use of town plans in urban research and the methodological challenges of comparative urban history. Parts II and III constitute the core of the book focusing on the dynamic relationship between lordship and town planning in the core area of medieval Europe and on the periphery. In Part IV the symbolic meaning of town plans for medieval people is discussed. Part V consists of critical contributions by an archaeologist, an art historian and an historical geographer. By presenting case studies by leading researchers from different European countries, this volume combines findings that were hitherto not available in English. A comparison of the English and German bibliographies, attached to this volume, reveals some interesting insights as to how the focus of research shifted over time. The book also shows how work on urban topography integrates the approaches of the historian, archaeologist and historical geographer. The narrative of medieval urbanization becomes enriched and the volume is a genuine contribution to European studies"--Publisher's website
