Abstract

This thesis challenges the consensus tone that sweeping changes to the people and the land of the Welsh Marches arrived with the Normans following the conquest of England in the last third of the 11th century. The Welsh Marches were altered forever by the Normans, yet their impact was varied. Using a variety of primary and secondary sources, it is demonstrated that aspects such as daily life, religious influence, economics and trade, construction improvements, nobility, laws, and colonization were not equally influenced by the coming of the new Norman overlords.
