The making of nations in Britain is a long and complicated process. National and local identities were gradually shaped and reshaped
in the Middle Ages. The purpose of this session is to show some aspects of the process of formation of national and local identities in so-called ‘Celtic areas’ (Ireland, Scotland and Wales), by referring to the last high-king of Ireland, the place of the Glasgow bishopric in 12th-century Britain and the importance of the Bohun-Mortimer dispute in late 13th-century Marcher Regality
