The scholarship of the influential historian Steven G. Ellis provides inspiration and coherence to this collection of original essays assembled in his honour. Explorations of the history of Tudor Ireland form the core of the volume, but essays on late-medieval Ireland, the Tudor far north and on the Netherlands and Iceland in later times broaden the chronological and geographic scope.
