This chapter offers a Welsh perspective on the broader issue of how, and how far, societies on the peripheries of more powerful and established polities changed as a result of their exposure to external influences originating from the latter. It focuses on the nature and scope of change within Wales rather than on the degree to which Wales came to look more like the rest of Latin Christendom — a distinction that, in any case, requires immediate qualification, inasmuch as it implies a uniform European norm against which Welsh developments may be measured. Indeed, one of the premisses of the present discussion is that those developments were ‘European’ as well as ‘Welsh’, belonging as they did to what was, after all, a highly variegated pattern of change across Europe as a whole.

Keywords:   medieval Wales, Welsh society, external influence, Europeanization
