Abstract

"My talk concerns suburban commons of Dublin – no longer in existence – but which were important to the life of the city in the Middle Ages and in the early modern period. Their management was somewhat unique in that they were subject to rules of a coloniser, and as such they illustrate one aspect of the history of colonisation in Ireland. I will present a summary account of Dublin’s commons; discuss the nature of governance in Dublin following the Anglo- Norman conquest; and then examine the effects the mode of governance had on the use of the commons."
