Works edited

Livingston, Michael, and John K. Bollard (eds), Owain Glyndŵr: a casebook, Liverpool Historical Casebooks, Liverpool: Liverpool University Press, 2013.  
abstract:
This book presents the original text and English translations of the medieval and post-medieval records, documents, poems and chronicles relating to Owain Glyndŵr (1357?-1415, revolutionary and the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales), his career and his legacy. In addition, textual notes and essays on the historical, social and literary context of these documents will provide up-to-date perspectives and commentary on the man and his times. For the first time, historians, literary scholars, students and the general reader will be able to view a wide range of materials collected in a single volume and will be able to assess for themselves the significance of Glyndŵr in Welsh, English and European history from the late Middle Ages into the Renaissance – and to redress the imbalance of historical accounts past and present.
