Boekbeschrijving

David I was one of the most renowned rulers of western Europe of his time; his reign saw the transformation of Scotland into a feudally-organised kingdom open to a large variety of influences from England and Europe. This edition, the first for over ninety years, brings together all the known surviving official documents (charters, letters, administrative commands and so on) issued in his own name, and those of his only son Henry, effectively joint ruler with his father from c.1135 to his death in 1152. They are edited from the best manuscript sources and are provided with summaries and editorial comment. A detailed introduction analyses the form and content of the material, and the volume is completed with substantial indexes of persons, places, subjects and technical terms. G.W.S BARROWis former Professor of Scottish History at the University of Edinburgh.
