In Search of the Sea Kings – A Forgotten Manx Medieval Kingdom
Dr Andrew McDonald will be discussing his new book The Sea Kings with us at the Manx Museum lecture theatre on 04 July 2019.
This brand new book represents the first study of the Late Norse kingdoms of Man and the Isles in the period of the central Middle Ages (c.1066–1275).
“The Manx and Hebridean sea kings represent something like lost rulers of the medieval British Isles. But in their own day they were figures of considerable stature and importance. One of the most gratifying aspects of my research is attempting to redress the balance and restore them to a well-deserved place in medieval British history.” – Dr Andrew McDonald
