‘To assess properly these papers would take a volume of its own. Suffice it to say that cumulatively these two well-illustrated volumes transform our knowledge of medieval Dublin by placing such a large amount of primary archaeological information and historical analysis in the public arena for the first time. They are to be commended for their multi-disciplinary nature and it is to be hoped that Medieval Dublin will develop into an annual series – one that, on present form, is essential reading not just for the students of Dublin’s past but also for anyone with an interest in medieval Ireland', John Bradley, Studia Hibernica.

‘The papers published in the Medieval Dublin series belong to a variety of disciplines, but archaeology may be considered foremost among them … the Medieval Dublin series clearly makes an important contribution to the history of the city … The quality of the illustrations in the series has gone from strength to strength … the significance of the series lies not in individual articles but in the annual appearance of a volume of scholarly papers from a variety of disciplines, often outlining the results of very recent research, which are dedicated to the study of medieval Dublin', Rory Sherlock, Peritia (2010).
