The Age of Conquest

R. R. Davies

Oxford University Press

In the fourteenth century, Wales enjoyed an unprecedented period of peace. With the exception of the rebellion of Llywelyn Bren in Glamorgan in 1316, there was no major revolt or war in the country between 1295 and 1400. To a society where raids and pillage had been for so long a normal, indeed essential, part of life and the struggle to contain and to counter the advance of Anglo-Norman lords and English kings a consuming preoccupation for over two centuries, peace was indeed a novel experience. However, even the nervous English settlers in newly conquered north Wales began to believe that the days of military emergency were indeed at an end: already in 1316 in Dyffryn Clwyd the best armour was replaced by the best beast as the heriot payable by English military tenants.
