The Economy of Medieval Wales, 1067–1536

In October 2019, The Economy of Medieval Wales, 1067–1536, by Matthew Frank Stevens, will be released by University of Wales Press.  

This book traces the developing economy of Wales from the first Norman intrusions of 1067 to the Act of Union of England and Wales in 1536. It covers the evolution of the agrarian economy; the foundation and growth of towns; the adoption of a money economy through to the effects of English colonization and economic exploitation; the collapse of Welsh social structures and rise of economic individualism; the disastrous effect of the Glyndŵr rebellion; and, ultimately, the alignment of the Welsh economy with the English economy.

This volume presents a narrative account of medieval Wales’s economic history and concludes by testing the applicability in a Welsh context of the main theoretical frameworks that have been developed to explain long-term economic and social change in medieval Britain and Europe.

Matthew Frank Stevens is Senior Lecturer in History at Swansea University. His work is primarily focused on the economic, legal, and social history of later medieval Britain and Europe.
