abstract:
This paper traces the relationship of the Roman Empire with Ireland and Wales from roughly the fifth to the seventh centuries and probes the role that Roman and Canon law played there following the events of 410, based on evidence from authors, such as Prosper of Aquitaine, Venantius Fortunatus, Zosimus and Gildas, as well as the vernacular legal traditions. This approach allows us to investigate perceptions of legal identity in Post-Roman Britain and the echoes of Latin learning embraced in Ireland.

abstract:
The first part of this chapter considers the relatively straightforward relationship between the section on letters in Gramadegau Penceirddiaid (GP), the Welsh vernacular grammars, and the section on Litterae in Donatus’s Ars Maior. It then goes on to consider the more problematic case of how the voiced dental fricative /ð/, now written in Welsh with a double dd, was spelt in the different versions of GP. In particular the adoption of the Latin abbreviation for que as a spelling for /ð/ in the Peniarth 20 version is considered in the context of the development of consistent orthographies in late Middle Welsh.

abstract:
A narrative is provided stretching from the period immediately before the great attacks on Britain in the 360s up to the great Justinianic plague of the 540s. This is the period which saw the end of direct Roman authority over Britain and the settlements of the Anglo‐Saxons. It also saw the creation of a new Britannia (Brittany) in north‐west Gaul, which survived in spite of the military dominance of the Franks. In Britain, the wars between the Anglo‐Saxon settlers and the Britons extended over several centuries, whereas, south of the Channel, the Franks subdued other barbarian peoples, were converted to Christianity, and allied with the Gallo‐Romans.
