The study of women and gender has been one of the great growth areas of later twentieth-century historiography in general. This has had an influence, albeit patchy, on the study of early medieval Britain and Ireland. Scotland pre-1100 is poorly served with written sources, and there has been little advance here. But Viking Age archaeology, in Scotland and elsewhere, has been very alert to both women and the wider gender questions (see chapter 14). The same source problems have inhibited work on Welsh women, though here archaeology has done less to redress the balance.

24 The year 1066 has provided such a demarcation point of origins for the English since the sixteenth – even from the twelfth – century. The coming of the Normans has had some significance in defining “origins,” or periods of particular significance in the telling of national stories, throughout Britain and Ireland. The arrival of the (Anglo-)Normans – though a century or so later – has some of the same significance in shaping Irish historical memory as 1066 does in English. The vernacular here may as a result have assumed an even greater role in a culturally defined national identity whose political expression the invaders are seen as effectively aborting.
