Dyfyniadau

‘The reissue of this landmark publication is to be warmly welcomed. It remains the authoritative analysis of the structure of royal government in the southern counties of the principality of Wales as well as an invaluable work of reference, which illuminates a wealth of topics through its painstaking reconstruction of the careers of office-holders.’
- Professor Huw Pryce, Bangor University

‘This continues to be an indispensable source of information for the political and social history of medieval Wales. The documentary evidence presented here casts fascinating light on the careers and connections of the ruling classes and on the interactions between English overlords and the Welsh gentry who administered local government on their behalf.’

- Professor Dafydd Johnston, University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies

An essential guide for anybody exploring the culturally-complex society of late medieval south Wales. The new edition will also be welcomed by a wider readership, for Ralph Griffiths traces the careers of scores of individuals who also served in other dominions of the English crown.
- Professor Robin Frame, Durham University
